  • Informative about the history of policing in Phoenix. The staff was friendly and helpful. We spent an hour or so looking at the exhibits and reading the info.

  • Located downtown, this small yet very well laid out museum provides one with an indepth look at the history of The Phoenix Police Department. There is no admission fee, however, a donation is much...

  • Nice meusem with free admission. A lot of great history from different decades. All the retired LEO museum volunteers are very nice and really support the Museum. Kids love all the display item's and gift shop.
  • Super neat place to learn about the history of the police force in Phoenix. Fun for the kids too, they let them put on a police shirt, sit inside an old cop car and sit on a police motorcycle. Kids loved it!
