    It is a journey that allows you to become aware of the chilling events that happened in that place. Very well done video initial context in time and space. Explore the basement and third floor of what "the officers Casino", was to hear testimonies from witnesses and survivors of the trial, read the headlines or articles of newspapers of the era, made me relive that difficult period of adolescence. The walls, the sadness of the place cold, leave a feeling of powerlessness. For those who visited other museums around the world, it is the equivalent to visit the Holocaust Museum in New York.

    Is a historical tour to expand knowledge and keep alive the memory of those who were detained here, travel if you can must be made to guide several tours guided during the day, although East prepared to do so only is better with a guide since it marks some chilling details that lived in the buildings , there are many stories there are to go with time, try to go mainly officers casino which is where were the detainees. Necessary travel and no Argentine not to be missed.
