The Museo Historico Policia is one of my favorite museums in all of Colombia.
This elegant building was originally built in 1923 and is dedicated to the history of the Colombian National Police.
While the displays that range from weapons, uniforms, Pablo Escobar’s former possessions, and displays of different Colombian police units are impressive, what stands out is the assignment of an English speaking police guide.
The guides take their job very seriously and take the time to explain each exhibit in great detail.
Another highlight of the visit is the stunning view of Bogotá from the museums rooftop.
A visit to the Museo Historico Policia is highly recommended to learn more about the men and woman who have dedicated their lives to protecting Colombia and who have fought on the front lines against the war on narcotics.
