  • Small museum but worth a visit. My grandson loved the motorcycle and car lights.
  • This is a world-class Museum. You will enjoy the exhibits. Can you believe there is a car ,helicopter motorcycle and other police displays. There is an honor room that celebrates the Officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. You will leave with the feeling of patriotism and pride of our brave police officers. The Phoenix Police Department has a national reputation of being the best in the United States.
