Museo de la Policía Federal information
This quirky police museum displays a whole slew of uniforms and medals, along with ‘illegal activities’ exhibits (cockfighting and gambling), drug paraphernalia (including a fake arm stuck with a needle!) and even a stuffed police dog. The forensic room way in the back was being remodeled at research time – it may or may not keep its grisly photos and dummies of hacked-up murder victims; something to keep in mind if you bring the kids.
