With exclusive access to documents and artefacts that commemorate some of Victoria's most significant historical moments, the Victoria Police Museum provides a unique experience for visitors and school groups.

The Victoria Police Museum offers an immersive experience from the beginnings that detail the establishment of Victoria Police, through to modern policing and technology.

Explore the years of societal change of the 20th century, world conflicts that show the dual role police have in wartime and on peacekeeping missions, and the equipment used by police.

Uncover some of the major investigations, including forensics and major crimes, and a section dedicated to remembering those who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
