Some Thoughts on Memory Museums

(p.185) Conclusion
Andean Truths

Anne Lambright

Liverpool University Press

The conclusion ties together the themes of transitional justice, nation building, and ethnicity by briefly examining three “memory museums”: the Lugar de la Memoria in Lima, and two museums in Ayacucho. The first is a controversial effort by the state to create a national museum to commemorate the conflict. The two museums in Ayacucho are local efforts, the Museo de la Memoria in Huamanga, established by Quechua-speaking mothers of dead and disappeared persons, the Yuyana Wasi museum in the municipality of Huanta. The conclusion asks why, within the context of Peruvian transitional justice efforts, the official, state-sponsored memory space has experienced so many difficulties, its opening delayed for years, while unofficial, even rebellious, grassroots efforts have comparatively succeeded in providing spaces where Peru can confront its difficult past.
