The Museum at the Memorial Centre for the Victims of Terrorism was inaugurated in 2021. It disseminates the democratic and ethical values embodied by the victims of terrorism, constructing a collective memory of the victims and raising public awareness against terrorism, and about the defence of freedom and human rights. There are 6 rooms to be visited in the museum’s itinerary: 1) Here, yesterday – as an introduction. 2) Memorial Space – the central area of the building. 3) The history of terrorism. 4) Hate speech and practices – the area about the perpetrators. 5) Response to terror -police, social, international, political and legal) and finally 6) The voice of the victims. The Memorial Centre provides visitors with a documentation centre, assembly rooms, a classroom and a museum with permanent and temporary exhibitions.
The renovation works on the old Bank of Spain in Vitoria-Gasteiz commenced in March 2015 and in 2021, exactly one century after the first inauguration, the building reopened its doors as the Victims of Terrorism Memorial Centre. Designed by the Navarre architect José Yarnoz Larrosa (1884-1966), the building is in the neo-Renaissance style and has a rectangular floor plan measuring 33 x 20 metres.
