  • Great place with texts in Spanish, English and French (audio only Spanish). Well kept and friendly staff. Very informative and the architecture is interesting in and around the building (you might want to see the park next to it).
  • Very impactful and powerful museum. Everything from the buildings structure to the layout inside is impressive and conveys feelings of fear and regret. It's recommended to understand some Spanish for the full impact but most of the key items have English subtitles.
  • A must of your visit to Medellín. Whatever you do, don't miss it: it's moving and carefully curated
  • It was good to get a different perspective on the troubles which do not refer to the man "who shall not be named". There are some English translations but there is the potential with time for this time to increase add well as include other languages too. Fingers crossed as it's an emotive place.
  • I pretty much recommend this place, specially if you want to see the Colombian violence and internal war from victim's view.
