Things to do and experience
Take a seat in a police van, take a picture of yourself in the suspect registration chair, explore exhibits – the Police Museum offers a wide variety of things to see and experience.
In the activities space called TOTI, adjacent to the permanent exhibition, you can find, among others, the Pokela police station for children, a police van and Kino cinema, where you can watch films about the police. The films are mainly in Finnish, but they are fun to watch, even if you do not understand the language.
Little police officers in the Pokela police station
The Police Museum’s children’s section, i.e. the Pokela police station for children, has plenty of activities for young museum visitors. Children can, for example, sit behind the wheel of a small police car and play with the toys in the Pokela police station.
There is a hidden treasure in the blue lockers: small police overalls, which the small officers of the Pokela police station can wear during their museum tour.

Watch and examine
The museum offers the possibility to take a peek inside a real police van. You can get a feel of what it would be like to drive the van, take a peek at the van’s work space in the middle section and even take a selfie in the transportation space in the rear of the van.
How about a picture of yourself as the ‘villain’ in the suspect registration chair? Grab the mugshot sign and sit in the registration chair! You can also share your museum visit pictures in social media. Please remember to use the hashtag #Poliisimuseo or @Poliisimuseo.
The Police Museum’s wall of items that may be touched features a collection of police tools and equipment. These may be touched and examined. The descriptions of these items are also available in Finnish braille.
