El Museo de la Memoria y Los Derechos Humanos

This museum was made to shed light on the crimes committed during the Pinochet dictatorship between 1973-1990 and provides factual evidence of the occurrences during this time so that these events are never again repeated. It was inaugurated January 2010 and honors the victims of the dictatorship and their family members in an attempt to reunify the country. There are different objects, documents and archives in the museum that help tell the story. 

When going to the museum it is important to dedicate a lot of time to it. Unfortunately, when we went we did not have enough time to really look at every video, listen to every recording, etc. to have a full grasp of everything but we had a great guide who was very knowledgeable and made sure to touch base on every important fact. 

Pictures are not allowed inside the museum so I cannot share any with you but it is something I highly recommend anyone visiting Chile to attend to. The place is rich in history and it was very interesting for me personally to see evidence dealing with things I had learned a lot about in my Chilean History and Culture course.
