New family took me to see this historic place. Was initially bet by a military General who greeted me in English. Explained the history and the areas of the building and where exhibits were located. Great place to visit if you like military history.

We met a wonderful guide here, a soldier, who spoke excellent English and told some great stories about the history of the Colombian military and of Bogota itself. I really liked it, and the folks that staff it are just fantastic. Definitely worth a stop!
