Telling one of the great survival stories of the 20th century
Oct 2021
Without a doubt the best museum in Montevideo. Small but packed with emotion. This is more of an emotional experience than a museum visit. It exists solely for the benefit of the visitor. It needs your support and feedback as it has never received government funding nor assistance. It is one of the great survival stories of the 20th century connecting the dots of life, death, and survival. It won't help you discover the meaning of life but will put all other problems in their rightful perspective.

Moving tribute to the Andes crash desaster
Nov 2019
It seems that most people of a certain age clearly remember the Andes tragedy.
Some read the book as I did and were struck by the human quality of these young people facing all kind of obstacles, as well as great ethical challenges.

I feel that the Andes Museum really is a tribute to the whole crash experience, to the survivors as to those who didn’t come back.

Intimate details allow a very personal approach to the visit. There's lots of technical information too, maps, objects, silent witnesses of all kind.
We were lucky the owner of the museum was around and kindly provided more details!

Very special place, a warm welcome to contemplation …
Thank you

Rugby enthusiasts must visit
Feb 2020
We discovered the museum on a walking tour of Montevideo. The exquisite display detailing the trials and tribulations of the team were very informative well displayed plus the insights of the owner made a brief excursion into a lengthy and informative visit. The owner occasionally visits Brisbane and has a excellent knowledge of the sport of rugby union.
A definite visit if you are interested in survival rugby and what the survivors are now doing

Wonderful experience
Mar 2020
As someone not from the area, I had heard about the the Andes crash but didn't know very much about it. This museum has a really good selection of objects that were used during that time and brought back after the crash but also new items that were discovered at the site very recently. The owner is welcoming and will answer any questions you have, although the exhibit doesn't leave you with many since it explains the events well. Before looking around, you can watch a short video that recaps the event and includes testimony. After that you are free to take your time looking at the objects and reading timelines and letters. The museum itself is clean and comfortable. I definitely recommend making this a stop in your visit to Montevideo! It is a big part of Uruguayan history and well worth the time.

A Moving Story of Human Resourcefulness
Jan 2020
This museum tells a story of how a team of young men most of who were just 20 came together to survive 72 days in extreme conditions in the high Andes. Having come from Uruguay, they had never experienced harsh weather before. We had the unique opportunity to meet one of the survivors who provided us with two insights. The first was that your life can change in an instant. These young men thought they would be in Santiago that evening dancing with the girls before their rugby game the next day. The second was how their attitudes changed when they discovered the search for them had ended. At that moment they knew they would have to rely on their own resourcefulness to return home. This museum is a real tribute to these young men who are true heros. Don’t miss this museum in your visit to Montevideo.

The most moving museum in South America
Dec 2019
I've been to 7 South American countries, and many of the museums in them, but this by far the most moving I've ever encountered. We intended to stay for just 30 minutes but Jorge, the founder, so beautifully brought the story to life for us (as did the film and numerous English sign explanations) that we had to tear ourselves away after three hours as we had a bus to catch. This museum is a labour of love and a testament to everyone involved in the miracle - the survivors, their families and the rescuers - as well as those who died, all presented in a highly informative way. I was in tears by the end as I was so touched by the things the survivors did to give themselves hope in a seemingly hopeless situation. Thanks Jorge for taking the time to show us round - we loved every minute and think you've done a truly amazing job.

THE MOST MOVING PART OF OUR TRIP TO MONTEVIDEO
Nov 2019
This museum will move you to tears whether you remember the horrific Andes crash of 1972 and the miracle of the survivors. It is filled with artifacts and a haunting video of the survivors as they tell you all they had to endure.
