  • The museum structure itself is nice. When you first walk in, it still has the old police station feel to it. The old cells are also interesting to see, as are the old vehicles and motorcycles. The old uniforms and big name cases described are also interesting to see. The Adam-12 exhibit is definitely cool. My biggest disappointment is that there isn't much talking about the beginning of the department: how it was founded, what the early days were like, and how it evolved to what it is today. Perhaps it was discussed in the audio tour, but just based on what was displayed, I was somewhat disappointed.
