Museo Histórico Policial


On Jujuy's plaza, the colonnaded cabildo (council building) houses the Museo Histórico Policial. Police museums in Argentina are weird things, with grisly crime photos, indiscriminate homages to authority and the odd quirky gem – in this instance it's the discovery that in 1876 you could expect a five-peso fine if you wanted carnal knowledge of a llama.
