Museum for the whole family with free entry

The Police Museum, winner of last year’s Museum of the Year award, has two exhibitions on display. Our permanent exhibition, ‘The Police is Here!’, describes the transformation of police work through crime and accident cases from different times. The temporary exhibition about forgeries, ‘The coloured truth – Art crime in Finland’ presents key incidents of art crime committed in Finland and the related preliminary investigations conducted by the police.

The museum offers things to see and experience for the whole family. For children, we have the special Police station Pokela, and in the permanent exhibition, you can, for example, sit in a police patrol van or play our crime scene game.

Entry to the Police Museum is free of charge. 

You can also visit the museum remotely – at the virtual museum, you can explore our online exhibitions and take a virtual tour of the museum. The Police Museum’s YouTube channel features fascinating video accounts of art crime and time travel with wizard Antti Lieroinen.
