    What to Expect
    Visit: Andes Museum, 619 Rincon Street, Montevideo 11000 Uruguay

    The Museum is located in a 19th century building in the historic City centre of Montevideo, which was declared national heritage. The exhibit includes pictures, documents, personal belongings and airplane debris, among other relevant items. A timeline provides a day-to-day account of the events that took place in the “Valley of Tears”, as well as of important events that were occuring at the same time in other parts of the world, during those never-ending 72 days. 400 square metres, 40 bilingual panels, 30 cabinets, several screens and original debries, shows you all the relevant facts about this unique story of survival. Our activities (Art contests, conferences, etc. related to several topics in connection with the story) can be followed via our web page: www.mandes.uy

    This museum will move you to tears whether you remember the horrific Andes crash of 1972 and the miracle of the survivors. It is filled with artifacts and a haunting video of the survivors as they tell you all they had to endure.
