Sobering museum commemorating the victims of the 1973 coup and Pinochet regime

Absolutely Wonderful

Why You'll Love It

This is a must when visiting Santiago, especially for visitors traveling from the US. Established in 2010, this museum remembers the September 11, 1973, coup in Chile that deposed the democratically elected leader Salvador Allende and installed Augusto Pinochet as dictator. The brutal dictatorship lasted until 1990. This sobering and respectful exhibition remembers the victims of persecution and calls on all of us to respect the dignity of people.
