A museum for everyone

The International Museum for Democracy was inaugurated on April 24, 2019. However, since 2011 its doors have periodically opened to publicize progress in the long restoration process of the building while exhibiting some of the valuable documents and objects from your collection.

It is a cultural project conceived with the aim of generating a plural and inclusive space, from which to promote the values of freedom, justice, democracy and respect for human rights.

Each of its different rooms can be seen as a space open to reflection and analysis of the dilemmas of democracy on the contemporary scene.

This Museum is an open window to the world of the present, to its shady areas, but also to its territories of light, those in which men and women struggle to expand the ideals of equity and justice, essential pillars, among others, of any democratic system.
