“Great Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

This museum is in the Pioneer Square part of Seattle and I was the only one to visit it during this particular day. The displays are wonderful, very well organized and the lady on duty this particular day was very, very helpful and explained a lot of things about the museum and exhibits. There is even a display where the youngsters could try on a police uniform and hat. A nice touch. Plan to spend a few hours at this affordable ($4) museum and take in all the exhibits and read all about it. Well recommended.

“Nice museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

If u like police history then this affordably priced place is worth the visit. There are a ton of police patches on the wall. The historical artifacts and documents are behind cases but great to view. You can try on police uniforms and sit at a replica 911 call desk. There is a replica jail cell too. The exhibits go right up to present day. For the price it was well worth it.

“Nice museum, worth visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013

The museum is downtown and is round the corner from the gold rush museum. It gives the background and a brief history of the SEattle police. Nice exhibits well explained and if you have a spare hour it's worth visiting. The lady on the cash desk gives some tips on places nearby that are worth visiting

“Worth a visit on a rainy day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013 via mobile

This is not a destination museum but one worth a look on a rainy day or if passing by. Excellent value for money at $4 entry fee and some interesting artefacts.
