Are you looking for an activity for the winter holidays? Welcome to visit the Police Museum in Tampere!

The Police Museum in Hervanta, Tampere, is open to all, free of charge. We present the history and activities of the Finnish police from the Middle Ages to the present day.

“At the Police Museum, you can, for example, sit in a police van, take a picture of yourself in the suspect registration chair and watch old films about the police. In the special children’s section, young museum visitors can wear police overalls,” says Curator Maritta Jokiniemi.

During the Tampere region winter holiday week, from 26 February to 3 March, the museum has extended its weekday opening hours by one hour, and will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Tuesday to Friday. On Saturday, 2 March, the museum will be open from 12 noon to 5 p.m. The museum is closed on Mondays and Sundays.

Because we are currently constructing the special exhibition ‘Marias and Mörkös – Police Vehicles On and Off the Road’, some museum premises are not in use. The museum’s permanent exhibition and children’s section Pokela are open as usual.
