Small free museum with some Cleveland history
Jul 2017 • Family
Took my 15 and 11 year old boys to see this free museum, was small but nicely done and gives some history of Cleveland. I especially enjoyed the Women's wall myself. Only thing to watch is the museum does cover some of the more "notorious" murders in Cleveland in some detail. I would not take young children who can read and understand that part.

Very enjoyable visit - and free

This is a very interesting museum, and entry is free. There are lots of very interesting exhibits, and as we were the only visitors at the time we had the benefit of a curator (a retired police officer) telling us lots of interesting facts behind the exhibits.

Dissappointed-- Call before you go!
Dec 2016 • Family
Took 5 grandchildren on an adventure over Christmas break to see the Cleveland Police museum. Located in downtown Cleveland at the Cleveland Police Headquarters on Ontario. Prepared the children as their Great Grandfather was a Cleveland police officer and relatives on the other side were detectives.

Website provided hours opened between 10 and 4. Arrived at 10:30, went through security and found the small area where the museum was located. Guess what! Nobody home! Asked a couple officers and they said it just depends. It was supposed to be open but no reason why it was not.

Call before you go so you don't end up with up with disappointed kids!

Walk a Mile in My Shoes

For anyone interested in history, just seeing the historic photos makes it well worth the time to visit. Putting people first, to serve and protect, is what these courageous officers do every day, mile after mile.

Nicely done, small but free

A nicely done little museum with great old artifacts. It provides a history of the police in Cleveland. It's free, so it should not be missed. A quaint gift shop is at the end for some souvenirs if you like.

Small, but interesting.

We have been wanting to visit here for years, but the weekday hours what had been preventing us. We had family in town and took off a Friday to visit. It was somewhat a hassle going through security, not as bad as an airport, but you still have to go through a x-ray machine because your entering the main lobby of the Justice Center. There are many artifacts, guns, badges, and photos etc. Very surprised to see murder pictures with body parts missing that happened in the early 1900's. There was a poster with a Cleveland mobster named Danny Green and a movie called "Kill The Irishman" was made. That night I downloaded it from Amazon, we all loved the movie. It was hard to believe this all happened in Cleveland in the 70's. Even though the Museum is free, it would still be worth a few bucks to see.

Free, Quick and Interesting

This is a small museum located in the "lobby" of the Cleveland Police Downtown Headquarters. Due to security, you must access through the main entrance to the Justice Center.

So, this is not a fancy museum by any stretch, but it is very interesting - particularly as it relates to some of Cleveland's most historic happenings. There is a cool display about the Glenville Riots, a display case explaining Terry Vs Ohio, Elliot Ness stuff, Danny Green and more.

Wander in and plan to spend about 45 mins to an hour. It's worth your time.

It was closed early
Mar 2016 • Family
Had an impressive collection of badges from fallen officers dating back to late 1800's
Disappointing that it was closed due to lack of interest, funding and support. Will try again tomorrow per recommendation from security officer.
