The Police Museum’s doors will be opened again for visitors on 11 May. The Museum will be open from Tuesday to Friday 10 a.m.–3 p.m. and on Saturdays 12 noon–5 p.m. 

The Police Museum may host up to 30 visitors at a time until further notice. Schoolchildren can visit the museum one class at a time. 

To make your museum visit as fluent as possible, please book in advance. The Police Museum’s lobby service handles all bookings. Make your reservation by telephone: +358 295 418 325. We will accept bookings on Monday, 10 May, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. From then on we will only take calls during the Museum’s opening hours, from Tuesday to Saturday.

Unfortunately we cannot accept reservations made by email or through social media channels. 
The maximum visiting time is two (2) hours. Visitors arriving without an advance reservation may have to queue for their turn and it may not be possible to visit the Museum on the same day. 

For the time being, we do not arrange guided tours of the Museum, but an audio guide is available free of charge.  

We recommend that all museum visitors aged 12 or over wear a face mask on our premises. Please ensure good hand hygiene and follow the guidelines for social distancing, and visit us only when you are not sick.

Two exhibitions at the Police Museum

There are currently two exhibitions at the Police Museum: the new temporary exhibition “The coloured truth – Art crime in Finland” presents the key incidents of art crime committed in Finland, the related preliminary investigation by the police, and cooperation between the authorities. The permanent exhibition “The Police is Here!” provides information on the changes in maintaining public order and police work over the centuries. 

Police station Pokela, the children’s section of the Police Museum, offers a range of fun activities for young museum visitors. Children can, for example, sit at the wheel of a small police car and play with the police house toys.
