We found this museum when we walked down Wall Street and again we are so glad we did as we thought is was very interesting. This was included in our New York pass so not sure how much the entrance fee will be? The lady told us this is only a temporary site after they were hit at their permanent... More

Kind staff, relatively clean (for new york). I unfortunately went on a very warm day and while crammed in the Eric Garner exhibit, the ventilation system broke... Overall not a bad experience (again, for new york)

Still suffering the effects of Super Storm Sandy. There is a temporary site at 45 Wall Street. Stop by and don't miss the Museum Store.

Really interesting little museum. 3 floors of information, artefacts and photos of NYC police history. As you would expect, there is an area focussing on 9/11, which includes items worn by officers that lost their lives, which may be upsetting to some visitors. I visited with my mum, brother (who is a police officer in the UK) and younger sister... More

Really interesting place to go to for a couple of hours and see how somethings used to be. Included here is an old original police cell that was used, weapons taken off some criminals when arrested, pictures of crooks and officers from many years ago, and police badges of policemen killed in the line of duty , from the 20's...

Folks be aware, there is some rumors and talk of a $25 fee to be imposed to visit this museum. However, things are being done to try to ward off this exorbitant fee. Stay tunes

It is small but very interesting and I really loved that they had a section remembering the police officers lost in 9/11. the memorabilia is also not expensive and there are fun photo spots a long the way. I found it... More

We visited the New York City Police Museum on the same day that we visited Ground Zero and the 9/11 Museum. I really enjoyed visiting this Museum, it took just over an hour to visit all the exhibits. It's great for kids and equally great for adults. I would recommend visiting here. I found the 9/11 display touching, there are... More
