Guided Tour and Behind the Scenes Viewing

Get the most out of your visit to the National Law Enforcement Museum with a guided tour and a presentation of items that are not usually on display. Members of our curatorial team will take you through the history of law enforcement in the United States highlighting key items from our collection of over 21,000 objects, of which 800 are on permanent display. After your 60-minute tour, you will be free to engage with the highly immersive and interactive Museum. You can enjoy the signature film in the Theater or get hands-on experience of the forensics used in crime scene investigations. You could participate in an immersive training scenario and experience the split-second decisions that officers make on the job in our Training Simulator at no extra cost.
