Chile: Pinochet's Museum

The Pinochet museum got a fair amount of media attention when it first opened (I posted a few links at the time). You can get a really good look at it from this video, pointed out to me by Listen Yankee. By the look of it Daniel was quite right when he commented on my previous post that the building is very small and hardly an impressive site; nevertheless, surrounding all the talk of national monuments and representative spaces of memory, it's pretty fascinating to see a museal space which is rewriting history in this manner, with Pinochet as hero.
