Owner description: The Museum of Memory and Human Rights seeks to draw attention to human rights violations committed by the Chilean state between 1973 and 1990. Its mission is to allow dignity for victims and their families, stimulate reflection and debate and to promote respect and tolerance in order that these events never happen again. It is a Bicentennial project, inaugurated on January 2010, by then President Bachelet. Its purpose is to promote educational initiatives that enhance knowledge and consideration. Its location, on Matucana Street, is also part of an ongoing effort to promote the cultural circuit of Santiago's West Side. Through objects, documents and archives presented in different settings and formats, as well as a innovative sight and sound presentation, it is possible to learn part of this history: the military coup, the repression that took place in the following years, the resistance movement, exile, international solidarity, reparation policies.

I didn't understand the history of the missing persons and the dictatorship! I am so lost for words. This was by far the most impressive and thought provoking in all my tours!

I truly wanted to get a better understanding of Pinochet's horrors and I'm not sure the English audio guide provided that.

I didn't love the city of Santiago, but this museum was amazing. Easy to get to via subway (though not as well marked at the station as it might be.) Definitely get the audio guide. Even if I read Spanish I think there would be too much information to process. The guide is very thorough.

It was draining, but so good, so well curated. Don't miss it.
