Fodor's Expert Review Lugar de la Memoria

Miraflores Museum/Gallery
Free
From 1980 to 2000, two terrorist groups waged a fierce war against the Peruvian state: Sendero Luminoso and the Movimiento Revolucionario Tupac Amaru. Their assaults and the brutal reaction of the Peruvian military left some 70,000 citizens dead—mostly poor campesinos (country folk) from the sierra. This somber museum commemorates that dark period, with historical exhibits and video testimony from many of the victims. The displays are all in Spanish, but even if you don't know the language, this place makes an impression. An even more powerful exhibit on Sendero Luminoso is available on the sixth floor of the Museo de la Nación, in the district of San Borja.
