Our institution provides a comprehensive and varied assortment of resources specifically curated to facilitate the commemoration and remembrance of individuals who have suffered from Human Rights Violations (HRVs). These materials serve to chronicle the historical occurrences of human rights violations in the Philippines, with a particular emphasis on the Marcos, Sr. administration.

Our primary objective is to curate a comprehensive collection of materials that align with the unique requirements and preferences of our users, particularly in the realm of human rights, transitional justice, and the commemoration of individuals acknowledged by the state as victims during the period of Martial Law. In addition, our institution gathers items that possess qualities of rarity, uniqueness, or historical significance, all of which are in accordance with the missions of HRVVMC. The assortment of items in our collection is consistently expanding and undergoing changes. Therefore, we encourage you to revisit our collection frequently in order to stay updated on the latest additions.
