Visiting recently from the UK, where I am a Detention Officer, this is a must. This is a museum quite unlike any other, It may be small - but where else would you find a police car, motor cycle and helicopter! But this is only the beginning, there are not only well presented exhibits from the US police, but also from forces world wide.
The staff could not be more obliging, going at great lengths to explain the importance and history of the various exhibits - even advising how to take the best photographs (including a police aeroplane upstairs in the foyer of the main Police Station!)
Finally - it's free!!

my wife and i went here with our 5-year old -- it is great for families and especially for children to be aware of what a true police force does in a major city like tampa. the memorial in the front of the detectives and trooper is also significant and i can remember the day on the local news channel when they were killed. there are lots of historical exhibits in this museum, as well as the current devices and systems that the police uses. dont miss!

I visited this museum with my children and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is located next in downtown Tampa next to Tampa Police Department Headquarters. There are alot of police memorabilia such as an old police car, uniforms, and guns and old photographs of police officers of years gone by. There is alot that has changed in law enforcement so there is a section that shows the new technology the police department uses. This is extremely educational to its visitors as well as inspirational when you see these brave heros that serve and protect us. There is a souvenir shop that has items for puchase such as t-shirts and coffee cups, pens, books, and the like. What moved me the most about this museum was the memorial to the 2 police detectives and the trooper who were all killed in one day that stands in front of the building. I would highly recommend that anyone visit this museum that I beileve is not visited as often as some of the other art museum in the city. Nevertheless this museum stands for something important that we should never take for granted and those are our law enforcement offices..be they past, present or future.
