I liked how they didn't ignore the dictatorship, but certainly didn't glorify it. Just a black poster with an image of a bullet hole in glass, with stark white lettering "Dictadura Militar-Civil 1973-1985"

No other pictures or words in the room with that poster hung on a wall.

The hyphen between the two dates does all the work.

As a foreigner observer, I really appreciate how they didn't ignore that dark period in history, but neither did they try to explain it, etc. in a museum that basically is just showing off the past presidents.

If you didn't know about the dictatorship you know to find out about it afterwards.

The building was finished in 1873. The Uruguayan government acquired the building from the Estevez family in 1880. It became the working office of the president. Today it is a museum with displays of presidential artifacts. It is on the southern side of Independence Square.

This is a nice palace in the centre of the city, in plaza Independencia. There are many photos and paintings with the presidents of the state inside.

.....that served as the work office of the President of Uruguay. It has now become a museum. Though it was situated in the Independence Plaza, I didn't have the time to go inside and check out the artefacts.
Will do so again the next time I visit Montevideo
