Get Local Perspective on Chile's Past Dictatorship
From 1973 to 1990, Chile was under the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. During this period, many human rights atrocities were committed. After democracy returned to Chile, citizens stopped reeling and normalcy returned--but the question of what happened to thousands of the victims was never sufficiently addressed. This museum opened with the intent of bringing visibility and awareness of the atrocities committed and to the victims. While not an uplifting visit given the sobering material, it is a well-documented chronicle of an important period in Chilean history.
