Art, Artifacts, and Firefight Simulations at the New York City Police Museum
Prices Starting at
$ for adults
Features: Opened in 2000, the New York City Police Museum features, among other things, a display of the evolution of police uniforms, the gun used by Al Capone's gang in the 1928 murder of Frankie Yale, and a gift from Italy to New York City following the 1909 assassination of Lt. Joseph Petrosino, the only member of the NYPD to be killed in the line of duty on foreign soil.
Why We Go: An excellent alternative to the expensive museums of Manhattan, the New York City Police Museum features modern and old-fashioned police equipment, gun and patrol car displays, and a moving tribute to those officers who lost their lives on September 11th.
- Simulated Firefight: Visitors of the New York City Police Museum will have the opportunity to participate in a simulated police firefight. The simulation tests shooting accuracy and provides civilians with a better understanding of the difficulties police officers face in real-life situations.
- Kid-Friendly Activites: Children of all ages will love going to the New York City Police Museum, where they can test patrol car sirens, take their own "mug shot," and see what life is like on the other side of the bars in a real jail cell.
- Gun Displays: On the second floor of the New York City Police Museum, you'll find a display dedicated to the various weapons (mostly guns) that have been used by and against the NYPD over the years. Included in the collection are the first machine gun used in a gangland killing in New York and the gun used by Al Capone's gang in the 1928 murder of Frankie Yale.
Inside Knowledge: Having developed from a gallery house at the police academy, the New York City Police Museum opened at 26 Broadway at Bowling Green in January 2000 and re-opened at its present location, the former home of the First Precinct, in January 2002. Its construction was funded largely by the City and private donors, who provided $1 million and $2 million, respectively.
Do's and Don'ts:
- Do Bring the Kids: Kids will find the New York City Police Museum every bit as fascinating as adults. The younger ones, especially, will enjoy testing the patrol car sirens and getting their own personal "mug shots."
- Do Visit the Junior Officers Discovery Zone: Both educational and fun, the Junior Offices Discovery Zone at the NYC Police Museum is an interactive children's exhibit meant to teach the basic skills of police work.
- Don't Miss the Communications Room: Adjacent to the Junior Officers Discovery Zone is the Communications Rooms, where vintage communication equipment is displayed. Be sure to check it out.
- Don't Put a Hole in Your Wallet: A single general admission ticket to the NYC Police Museum is only $8. That's less than half of what most NYC museums charge for a single adult ticket, so you're guaranteed to get your money's worth.
