BOHOSLAVSKY, Ernesto; GONZALEZ DE OLEAGA, Marisa y DI LISCIA, María Silvia. Sense of belonging and exclusion in the Buenos Aires' National History Museum and the Trelew Museum in the bicentennial times. Rev. Pilquen [online]. 2010, n.13, pp. 00-00. ISSN 1851-3123.
This article intends to analyze the historical discourses displayed in the Museo Histórico Nacional (National Historical Museum, located in Buenos Aires) and the Museo del Pueblo de Luis (Lewis' Town Museum, in Central Patagonia). The purpose is to show the particular ways in that are exposed and organized the texts, the objects, the images and the spaces, that constitute the main collections on national and local history. Also, we try to offer some ideas on the manners in that traditionally underserved and misrepresented subjects are treated, such as the unskilled workers or the native communities. Both museums diver greatly: the National Museum is a traditional and well known institution which has been considered as the national memory custodian, dedicated to keep the holdovers donated by patrician families. Trelew's museum, on the other side, a much newer institution, is clearly under-budgeted and intends to preserve the "local" community objects and documentation.
