  • 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.
