  • Yes. The visit is in groups and guided by policemen who tell the whole story of the institution with photos, copies etc. Make the visit quickly, then I suggest taking pictures throughout the narrative.

  • Very good, but only the part of Pablo Escobar is interesting. The respect and friendship of the cops is amazing, totally different from Brazil. The rest part of the Pablo is pretty boring, I almost left. Speaking of badges and police.

  • 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
