  • If you are lover of action series, in this museum you will find information, photography and objects that you transported to places and times of their war against drug trafficking.

  • I think that the most striking is the information and objects that exist on Pablo Emilio Escobar Gaviria, narco known worldwide, the others shows the progress of the police of Colombia and its special divisions, worth visiting it. Let you take pictures, it is free and it is guided by young policemen.

  • Erroneously called the Museum of pablo escobar, if there is history of the, but this museum teaches as a evolved Colombian police, I recommend a visit since the same policemen are those who make the guidance and interestingly enough, we had to guide us kevin a very nice policeman and is much topic of interest, if they go to Bogotá to attend Police Museum , since for something in all of Latin america, is la.mejor.policia.

  • Free museum with a mandatory tour. Tour was done in English, which helped. Lots of police related material on display and several Escobar things with interesting facts. There is a room with lots of guns, if that is your thing.
  • Good free museum with free guided tours from police.
  • Apart from not being able to walk around freely to look at what I wanted because there was a police man explaining everything to me in the museum. I also felt that he was rushing through the whole thing and skipping lots of things, so he could go on lunch. The museum had lots of interesting objects with stories behind them.
  • Excellent place
