Allow at least two hours to visit this museum. Interpretation panels includes English on the upper floor but the English audio guide is detailed and a must for the ground floor. Very poignant stories from those that had been held in detention centres and tortured....More

Great museum but basic Spanish is definitely a plus as much of the displays are not part of the English "taped tour" for hire. Museum is free and a really chilly reminder of what happened so recently.

Memorable trip to the well structured and informative permanent exhibit which helped improve on my ignorance over this chapter in Chile’s history. Free entry but make sure you get the audio accompaniment ($2000CLP each) for a more immersive experience especially if you don’t speak Spanish...More

This museum extensively chronicles the awful dictatorship which lasted for 15 years and all the terrible things that happened to the Chilean people. Very worthwhile visit.
