A must-see for everyone who wants to understand the younger Argentinian history and what happened during the dictatorship 1976-1983. Highly interesting. Very competent and engaged guides who are able to ignite the wish to learn more about Argentina.

This place is a "must" visit for human rights activists and for people who are interested in the dark period of the military junta regime ("the dirty war"). This "museum" is almost a live witness to the daily life of the detainees who were held...More
