Museo Histórico Policía

Friendly young English-speaking police offer free guided tours of the Museo Histórica Policía, which are really worthwhile just to hear about their experiences. The basement is largely given over to a display on the notorious 499-day police hunt for drug lord Pablo Escobar, and includes his Bernadelli pistol, also known as his “second wife”, and there’s a great view across the city from the roof.
