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.

A moving memorial over the violence in Peru's recent past - committed by and against the Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path) guerilla movement. The architecture and the location is amazing and the exhibition is excellent.

This museum is about the memory of the horrors from the 70-2000 internal conflict in Perú and the advances towards reparation and peace. I find it superb, in the sense that the architecture of the museum reflects the path of history. It starts from the...More
