This is a really nice museum. It's about the history of terrorism in Peru. The place is really big and modern. Very insightful. If you're in Lima you definitely need to visit this place.

This museum recounts the history of terrorism in Peru. It is well-balanced view of the sad events occurring in Peru during the 1980-1990. Although it has been criticized by some political groups, the idea behind it to present all points of view since there were...More

A great effort to share a dark past of Peru. Testimonies, photos, stories, artefacts and a well thought out display allow people to stay as long as they want discovering a difficult past. Since it's free it's totally worth a visit even if your Spanish...More

Take time to learn about the Peruvian war in the 1980s. This museum is a good (and seemingly fair) repository of information about the Shining Path attack from within the borders. Presented in Spanish, the exhibit is fairly clear even for those without the language.

This museum recounts in a vivid form the decades of terrorism (and misguided efforts to control it) occurring in Peru starting in the 1980's. A very worthy visit.

Good muse and exhibit. Not in English, not do they have English maps yet, but easy enough for mildly fluent Spanish speakers to understand. Starts off a bit conservative, but makes an effort to present multiple perspectives.

The entrance was free. I stumbled to this place accidentally. Everything is in Spanish, but the theme is very clear. The museum shows Peru's history of violence of 20th Century. If you ever studied Latin American Revolution, this will be a great place to visit....More

If you are interested in history, this museum is a must see. Very informative and also does a great job transmitting not only the facts but also the impact of the conflict on the personal life of many people. Note to not-Spanish speakers: all the...More
