  • By far the most interesting thing to do in Medellin. Is a magical place, with attention to every detail and giving a complete idea about the sad recent history of the city. It does so without lapsing into platitudes and far from being a commercial attraction. Will amaze you

  • It is worth separate time to visit this museum. The historical account found me very well-organized and complete, fairly objective. Missing room is very impressive and photos and stories are also poignant. It helps to better understand the process of violence who lived in Colombia and the need for peace. It can be reached by tram t-a (green line), in the bicentennial season. Walk four blocks. The building is very nice.

  • 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.
