MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A fitting theme for the reopening of Mexico City's Police Museum- life like exhibits of famous serial killers.
The exhibition came from Italy in early December and features wax representations of some of history's most infamous villains, including Jack the Ripper and Charles Manson.
"The goal of the exhibit is to make people think about the dark side of humankind, which can only be fought by peace and harmony by people the world over," says forensic expert Pedro Estrada.
Visitors can take a self-guided audio tour through the life-like displays, as a narrator provides details on each killer and the murders they committed.
The exhibit features some of the world's most infamous killers- Jack the Ripper and Charles Manson amongst others.
A special room is dedicated to Mexican serial killers, focusing largely on the most notorious - Juana Barraza, who was arrested in 2005 for murdering 10 elderly women.
Another part of the exhibit focuses on capital punishment, featuring a replica of a lethal injection table and a gas chamber.
Replicas of skulls and victims' bodies complete the eerie picture.
The exibhition came to Mexico city from Italy in December.
Since then, this rarely-visited museum has attracted atleast 3500 visitors, curious for a glimpse into the minds of some of history's most infamous figures.
