Good for a look. There is a very limited guide in English telling you the basics of what is on each floor and that is about it. Would have been good to read about the different exhibits though. Very friendly and helpful staff. Museum is also free :)

Since, Japanese museums tend to be free or low cost, I try to check them out when I can. Anyway, it's a fairly small museum that details the history of the police, its duties, and as well, provide some useful information on crime prevention.

This museum is good for kids so that they can wear the police uniform and take photographs. Also it has displays of old uniform as used by Japanese Police

As adults we sat on the police bike and took pictures. This a free museum housed over 4 floors which would be better if there were more explanations in English.

I am not a kid, but if I was a boy again, I would want my dad to take me here. The opportunity to wear a police uniform and get on a police motorbike is something that can't be missed. It would surely be of interest to anyone who wants to learn about the history of modern Japan from this... More

Small museum but has some fun models and displays. Worth a 15-minute stop if passing by. Free admission as far as I remember.
