Museo Andes 1972, Montevideo
Categories: Specialty Museums, Museums
Museo Andes 1972 honors the lives of both survivors and victims of a plane crash that involved a group of high school rugby players, their friends, and relatives. The story that inspired many books revolves around 16 Uruguayans who endured 72 days in the cold mountains, with no food or proper clothing. See personal belongings, airplane debris, documents, and photographs from the "Valley of Tears." The 19th-century museum building with balconies made of Carrara marble is a worthwhile architectural attraction in and of itself.

Bom conhecer melhor a história e poder sentir um pouco do drama que aquelas pessoas passaram e que algumas puderam sobreviver. Museu pequeno, mas bem estruturado bom atendimento.Good to know better the history and be able to feel a little of the drama that those people passed and that some could survive. Small museum, but well structured service.show original
Interesting but lacks a bit more. It could have been a deeper experience if the collection was a bit bigger, just one big room and a little upstairs. The ticket costs 200 pesos, but it is possible to negotiate... I bargained two tickets for 300. It worths the visit but definitely is not a "must go".
Guille737Montevideo, Uruguay. Monday, May 9, 2016, by visiting the "Museum Andes 1972" in the hands of its Director the Lord Jörg P. A. Thomsen. We were amazed and impressed by the care, dedication and interest of its director, as well as broad knowledge and excellent explanation of the accident. Worth come and go with such meticulous, brilliant and well-prepared Guide. We were five crew members of the Airbus A330 of Air Europa fleet. A different point of view to learn to value the important and unimportant things in life and a very good review sobré CRM, leadership, human factors, teamwork and decision-making. Miss Henriette and the Miss Natalia, spectacular in its indications being great knowledgeable and guides of the Museum. Good wishes for the Lady Manager Andrea which we wish the best of luck in the world. Highly recommended and very good lesson.

Falta acervo físico. O cuidador do local é super atencioso, fala português e te recebe com muita simpatia. O museu vale mto a visita caso nao se tenha mais nada de interessante pra fazer na cidade porém pra quem ja conhece a historia o museu se rorna chato.
