  • This place is so boring! Don't waste your precious time there
  • This is my favorite museum in Bogota. We had a tour in English, the guide was a nice guy, he offered us a coffee at the end. All for free.
  • Awesome museum in Bogotá, clearly underated (particularly compared to museum like the Museo del Oro). We had a private guided tour for free. Had the chance to have details regarding the police activity and action during the Narcos period of the country, great occasion to see the "other side of the story" and different point of vue on the issue. Not only that, you have details on the police formation, evolution and their history since the beginning of the 20th Century. All of this, for free. Seriously, do not wonder anymore, this is a must do!
  • Marvellous excursion by the officers! Its exciting for an european to see how proud a country might be about its police and how glad junior officers are to explain tourists about the history of the colombian police!Very pleasant surprise!!
  • Very special museum in colombia, you can know the history of police in colombia, they even the trace of those narcos, they have an exhibition room of this hostorical event about pablo escobar, in the show room you can find tge clothes that escobar wore when he got arrested. the policeman inside of the museum can answer some questions about your questions of this museum. About the evolution of all the weapons and tools they used from long time ago, all the exhibitions are displayed in spanish. The building is not very easy to find, but definitely worth to visit, with the display of all the ploice flags from different countries in this museum and how they fight in a jungles, really interesting pkace to see. 很棒的博物館。免費參觀,若去波哥大很建議去參觀。有毒梟抓補的歷史展示,也有各種武器和囚車戰車等從古至今的展示。參觀時間大概需要2個多小時才能詳細了解館藏內容。
