Museum
“De los museos actuales, quizás el de mejor museografía. Duro por los temas que trata, tanto extranjeros como nacionales: Guerras, Persecuciones, Matanzas, Intolerancia Racial. Lo recomiendo bastante. One of the best modern museums, hard because of its content: Wars, Crime, Homophobia Human Rights. Great museography. Fun to watch the boys and girls doing choreographies in the mirror windows of the building next door. No idea why they do it! All the buildings that used to be in this area were destroyed by the earthquake of 1985...by the way.”
