If you want to learn about Medellín's macabre history, visit this museum. You will learn about the gruesome past from the drug conflict and see what people are doing to move forward and away from it all. May need to carry a knapkin for the...More

It's important to remember, even though Medellin's story is a sad one. The museum is modern and it's not the standard museum approach (different multi-media, video's, postcards etc). However, the most important things, like some audio fragments and the timeline were only in Spanish. They...More

My review will differ from the majority here, as I've visited many such sad places worldwide so I got enough of it, it leaves a bad impression on me and ruins my day. Most of the facts here you already know, or you can learn...More

Visiting this place reminds me of the Holocaust in Poland. I ended up feeling depressed at the end of the trip. Thank God, today it is a great deal of difference.

The museum is for free. It has lots of English subtitles. There are movies for you to watch with English subtitles. It was emotional because it shows the strength of the Colombian people despite all that’s has happened.

It is recommended to visit this interesting and important museum with an English guide as most of the display is only in Spanish. It will introduce you to Colombia's history of violence and blood-shade, which will emphasize the transformation Colombia and Medellin has gone through...More

Make time to visit this museum, this “house” that is dedicated to the victims of violence over time in Medellin and Colombia. Admission is free and there is an app that you should download in advance (bring your ear buds) that will assist English speakers...More

Beware as there are minimal english displays. It's also located not near any other attractions, and not that easy to find even on Uber. Also quite difficult and a bit hard to get Uber out. Displays are simple, but the videos with English subtitles are...More
