A Visit to the Police Museum

During our bike tours, we often pass by the Police History Museum, and today we visited it.

The museum is small, charges no admission and has tours in English, albeit Colombian English. We learned a bit about the police and lots about the fall of cocaine king Pablo Escobar, who terrorized Colombia during the ’80s and ’90s. Of course, the police are always the heroes here.

The museum even has parking space for bicycles!
