Abstract

This essay is a reflection on Memorial Museums as special Museums that keep artifacts that are considered sensitive due to their origin, and diverse as regards their values (tangible and intangible), materiality and significance, which require a new perspective on the part of conservation professionals. In this text, we will address several questions in order to identify and better understand the mission and the formulas adopted by these museums: how the institution is, how important the place where they belong is, and how the process of construction of the collection’s significance is. In order to do so, our starting point is the new museum definition created by icom and the Charter of icmemo, International Committee of Memorial Museums in Remembrance of the Victims of Public Crimes.
