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.

A must visit - such a powerful museum with an important story to tell. Translation options are available for $2,000CLP. Nice walk out there from the city too if you want to explore some suburbs.

This is a museum that reminds us of a very dark period in Chilean history. A military dictatorship that killed thousands and tore the country apart. It is important to remember these nightmares and to treasure the democracy that thrives today
