Lot's of signs pointing to the general direction but nothing to indicate that it is on the second floor of a large office tower. Thank goodness for local in the area. A really interesting little museum talking about the police history of Melbourne and some of the more interesting facets of police life and past crimes. Well worth the visit.

The Queensland Police Museum is a smaller museum but worth a stop. Nice artifacts and exhibits with good information about policing in Queensland. Really there’s not much else to say, cops and their history in a museum setting, tada! Definitely check it out if you have the chance.

Take time to visit this museum as it is thoughtfully laid out and most Australians will know of some of the more significant cases that are highlighted. Well done to the Qld Police.

A fun quiet little museum, with well-presented stories, artefacts, and audio/video clips of Qld Police Service throughout its life from colonial to modern times. If you're lucky like us, one of the curators will be walking through and tell you a story or two.

I have an interest in policing and visited the QLD Police Museum located at the Roma Street Police Headquarters. I spent about an hour in the museum reading all the information relating to history. I thoroughly enjoyed the museum and it is one of the better ones I have been to across the world.

A touch self serving a one sided representation of the history of QLD police service hardly a honest representation of the past and overall conduct ... i would have hoped for a bit more balance in the display instead of the overly positive display... if you want to see the skewed display and enjoy a version or one side of...

If you're a museum goer, looking to join the police force or simply killing time in the area on the last Sunday of the month, I'd definitely recommend a visit! Expect to spend between 45 minutes - 1.5 hours depending on how much you want to read into the detail. There really is a lot to take in with many... More

We left it for a rainy day and spent a good hour there. Absolutely fantastic place, kudos to the management in the police HQ. Well arranged exhibits, and interesting stories. I particularly enjoyed the early days and cases of Brisbane policing, and the kids loved the crime scene display. It's free, but consider donating some money if you liked it.

The exhibits and the history of our Queensland Police Service. A great place to take our kids to learn of policing in the days gone by.
