  • The Museum is very well equipped. Modern and pleasant. Has with rooms and displays that teach the history and the errors of our society to learn and not it repeat. The work they do with the victims of the conflict by means of workshops and activities that help them to progress is also very valuable. The Museum also has meant an improves for the sector where is located.

  • Great, interesting and inspiring museum. Well done! It's small but definitely worth to visit. Thank you Medellin.
  • I loved this museum. Small, but very well done. Very informative.
  • This museum details the history of violence in Colombia. Everything is in Spanish, so if you're an English only speaker, you're out of luck. When I visited, the main exhibition hall was closed, so there wasn't much to see here. The library on the 3rd floor is nice.
  • Great experience and well done museum. Small but very well done and worth a trip.
  • Excellent very clean place.
