The New York City Police Museum, founded in 1998, is an institution dedicated to the longstanding history of one of the largest and most efficient police services in the world. The NYPD have been at the forefront of key events that have impacted and shaped the city. The museum plays host to exhibitions and programs that allow you to bear witness to a well-preserved collection of inventory. From iconic mug shots and fingerprints to arms, weapons and uniforms, the archives give you a glimpse of moving stories of courage. Examine the evolution of the department post the tragic 9/11 terror attack, and pay your respects to brave-hearts who lost their lives in the line of duty.
