On May 19th, 2015, after years of debates and votes, the ESMA Museum and Site of Memory was inaugurated with a permanent exhibition. Given its status as judicial evidence, the museum has not altered the building from the state in which they received it. The museum’s content was created primarily through the testimonies of survivors from the 1985 Trial of the Juntas and the trials for crimes against humanity that were reopened in 2004.
Today, ESMA is a place that denounces State terrorism and helps foster cultural memory. Its mission is to contribute to the knowledge, experience, and understanding of human rights violations committed by the Argentine State, promoting a dialogue within and between generations in the present and towards the future.
The Museum is currently on the Tentative List to become a Unesco World Heritage Site.
