  • I visit it constantly and I can give an account of the many activities that take place there. You can find many interesting spaces in this huge area of 17 hectares. Cultural centers as the Conti and the Ecunhi where you can enjoy music, theatre, lectures and more. Learn about the space of Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo and the Museum of Falkland. You can also request guided the officers Casino which is the place where the history of those who have been detained - disappeared persons during the military process is registered and that you have been able to give some survivors. Although this visit is the most hard to allows you to know what happened during the last Argentine military dictatorship that gave origin to the never again.

  • In space activities with the aim of preserving the memory and promote and defend human rights. Various cultural activities and produce content for that purpose.

  • Although the area is still getting organized, with many empty seats and without a proper conservation. But the proposal is wonderful! And, what is done, is very good. Without great special effects but depicting transparently the events. I also think you are able to tell the story (which is terrible) but also what was possible to be done from these events. It certainly is an excellent program for those who like history and want to have a more direct contact and of course with the events of that time. Another point to be improved are the information of the website were not updated in terms of timetables, events, etc.

  • Impactante, imprescindible su visita
  • Historical site - a must see - a learning place for humanity
  • Excellent throughout the campus. When you do by the streets you becomes dense. The story that people there lived inside revives in each door, window, wall, and not only in the posters. Everyone should walk out there, at least once in our life. The museums inside, (the Malvinas, Haroldo Conti, etc), are very interesting and overflow our collective memory. I wish all areas were upgraded, since there are many closed spaces that overflow with furnishings, and could be used / enabled.
