The Andes Museum honors the memory of the 29 Uruguayans who perished in the Andes in 1972, when their airplane crashed on its way from Montevideo to Santiago de Chile. This exhibition is also dedicated to our 16 fellow countrymen, who “returned to life” after having endured 72 infernal days under the worst imaginable conditions. We render tribute to those who put their lives at risk to save their friends.
By visiting this Museum, you help us transmit to the next generations the values and spirit of this story (Teamwork, Solidarity, Friendship).
