It records Argentina’s recent history by studying and raising awareness about the events that unfolded during the military coups that took place between 1976 and 1983. It has been acknowledged as a place of national interest and is one of the first museums of its kind in Latin America.
The Museum of Memory is a space to keep alive the memory of the men and women who experienced and witnessed the last military coup in Argentina. The idea behind the project is to refuse to forget, to preserve the stories of the disappeared and of the people detained during those dark years, as well as to dwell on the causes and consequences of the actions of an authoritarian State on civilian populations. Institutionally-speaking, the Museum is comprised of a specialized library and video library with an abundance of documentary info, as well as educational and research departments, all of which are enriched by art exhibitions, book presentations, seminars, training sessions, forums and discussion boards centered on recent history and the human condition.
