Small, Fun and Some Arresting Displays
Oct 2020
It's a small town museum with a focus on the police. And some typewriters. And a few sewing machines. It's eclectic, fun and small enough it doesn't take a long time.

Great new exhibit
Jan 2020
Very interesting new exhibit of the founding and development for the City of Rockaway Beach. Explanations, pictures of early settlers, along with displays of tools and artifacts of the period and city. See the website for new children's interactive opportunities.

Compact but excellent museum
Sep 2019
Child and mobility friendly. Excellent opportunity for a broad look at police activity over the last century. Current displays include Tillamook county law enforcement, Oregon State display, Women in Policing and a new display on the history of Rockaway Beach from the late 1800 to current activities.

Small but interesting museum. Took me about 30 minutes to view it. Took many pictures on the digital camera. They have a donation jar for you to put a couple of bucks, so don't be a tightwad, help them keep this place going. It's what small town America is about.

We found this totally by accident and had a good time going through it. It is small but it has some really interesting exhibits. The lady who was there was very delightful to talk with.

A great gem in Rockaway Beach. Very well done Police museum with many historical police items, and uniforms as they changed over the years. Super display of Policewoman's uniforms! Also several police items to put on for photos, I choose to have one with myself behind jail bars!

Either Do It or Don't Do It

I applaud their efforts to do something nice, however either have a 'museum' or don't have a 'museum'. Randomly displaying police memorabilia does not make this a museum. Maybe take some time & effort to at least clean & dust the place. The condition of the displays actually does more to disrespect the police service than to pay respect. I'm a 37-year patrol officer from a major west coast city and I was not impressed.

Was free to get in and the guy there was very friendly. There were some very interesting items but in the end very low budget museum.

Was a pleasant surprise. My sister and I visited and were not disappointed! We even found a picture of her children’s father among the items displayed. Great museum to visit!
