You are doing yourself a big disservice if you don't combine your tour of the Human Rights museum with a tour of the Noriega museum.....the two are soooooo intertwined. My suggestion for a great days outing is as follows..... First start the day with a...More

So, after hearing a great recommendation from one of my friends from Santiago I went to the museum in the afternoon. The layout is depicted carefully in a handout from the information desk. If you speak English like I do ask for one of the...More

This is an extraordinary museum that commemorates the victims of Pinochet’s dictatorship (1973-89). My daughter speaks Spanish so she was able to get significantly more from the two hours we spent there than I was but I still thought it totally worth seeing. Given the...More

Fantastic exposition about the Pinochet regime and about the early plight of indigenous groups. Interesting exhibits and videos. Entry is free and just across the road from the metro station.

Scary and inspiring. I walked away thinking this could happen anywhere, but was inspired by the stories of those who fought back

Beautifullly done commemoration to the struggles of the Chilean people against the fascist dictatorship. The building is equally attractive with many interesting photos and videos (some in English too).

Expected something special given the subject matter. The place was inexplicably closed. The site itself (viewed from outside the fence) was disappointing and I expected more given the design was by a publicly voted architectural company. Maybe it’s good on the inside.

This is only a few stops on the green line west from Plaza de Armas, immediately across the street from the metro exit. A comprehensive museum covering the human atrocities and torture prevalent during Pinochet's reign of power. I only gave it four stars because...More

A moving historical memorial of the recent atrocities in the 1970s to late 1980s'. if you speak english be sure to get the headphones at a nominal cost. The museum is free. You will easily be there 2 hours plus. We were almost three hours.

A very instructive museum on the recent Chilean dictatorship under Pinochet. It definitely worths the visit if you are interested in history and human rights. Inside the museum there is a beautiful monument for the people that suffered the dictatorship.
