POINTS OF INTEREST

Museo de La Memoria y Los Derechos Humanos

This museum is a powerful testimony to the coup that established the Chilean dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet; the resulting detention, torture, and murder of Chilean citizens; and the country's historic vote to return to democracy. There is a heavy audio-visual component as well, with moving letters by children about the events of the times. There are some images and artifacts here that may be harder for children to process, but it's an important part of Chilean history and arguably the country's best museum. Admission is free, and it's just across the street from the Parque Quinta Normal. Audio guides in several languages are available for 2,000 pesos.
