This museum is located in Hervanta, in the same premises as the Police University College. The museum is easily accessed from the city center with the new tram (line 3).

The museum offers information about the Finnish police services throughout the time.

In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum features changing special exhibitions. On our visit, it was 'The colored truth – Art crime in Finland'.

The entrance is free. The museum is suitable for all ages.

We visited this museum on lazy Saturday afternoon during our trip to Tampere. The museum is about history of police in Finland. Collection included weapons, uniforms, handcuffs, defense devices, forensic investigation devices etc. We found the forensic investigation section very interesting.

There are a whole lot of details in Finnish which made it bit tricky to understand the exhibits. Very interesting and informative museum none-the-less. It's worth the bus ride as the entrance is free. There is something for all age groups so very suitable for families with children of all ages.

For those interested in history, the museum walks you through the Finnish police and justice system from past to present. Not all the information is in English, though.

Some exhibitions are interactive and kids will have things to explore and try out themselves.

Entrance is free - but it is quite far from the city centre, if you don't have business to Hervanta district otherwise.

We visited the museum with a group. The displays were very interesting and showed the police force from early days until the present.

This museum is pretty small, but it gives to you lot of information about Finnish police forces history. There is old police motorcycle, police cars, also videos, and pictures which tells to you police history.
There is also corner for kids, so I can recommed this place also families.
Staff were nice and helpful. Also museum is free, so it doesn't matter if you forgot
your wallet at home.

We wanted to find a place to visit with kids (age 3, 5 and 7) for an hour or so. The museum is not very big, but they have presented quite many aspects of police work in an interesting way.

The absolute highlight for the kids were the police overalls in kid sizes that you could borrow to play. The kid's corner was a really positive surprise: some coloring exercices, police costumes and even a small play area. I guess the museum offered some interesting "detective work" also for older children.

The entrance is for free. There was also a big, free parking in front of the building.
