A place to remind humanity of the dangers of extreme political power. Moving photos, film clips, personal writings and remembrances of the aftermath of the overthrow of President Allende. All of it very expressively revealed. The wall of photos of disappeared people whose fate is unknown was quite gripping. The museum is free.

We didn't take the audio guide in English, so as not to "overwhelm" the kids. There are audios in English at different stations in the museum. There are subtitles for some videos. One definitely gets the picture of abuse and torture. If in Chile, this is a "must see" museum. I would suggest the audio guide for a better understanding of the politics and US involvement.

If you have any interest in history of Chile or want to understand world politics little better, you should visit this museum. The displays are in Spanish, but there is an English audio guide available for small payment. Entrance is free.

The building is sited in a manner that conveys the idea of descending into memory as the visitor approaches and walks down to the entrance.

The architectural metaphor continues as you proceed from a general treatment of truth and reconciliation efforts actoss the globe to the specific events in Chile beginning with the military takeover in 1973, through the 17 years of dictatorship that followed, to the present. There is a final section on the top floor dealing with native peoples. We did not use the audiovisual center or the archives. The museum has a cafeteria, which we didn’t use either.

Our group of four included only one Spanish speaker, yet everyone was able to get the message and the power of the museum in spite of relatively few English labels.

The museum is easily accessible by Metro; in fact, you can enter the building directly from the station. However, you miss some of the sense of descending into and searching for memory alluded to above when yoh enter from underground.
