Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We really enjoyed our visit. The museum is conveniently located a short walk from Southern Cross station. All of the displays are very well presented and very interesting. The staff were friendly and helpful. There are several interactive exhibits that should appeal to both young and old. An added bonus is it is free entry. Definitely worth a visit.

The Victoria Police Museum is currently located at the World Trade Centre Wharf Building. It will close on Friday 31 Jan. 2021 and relocate to 313 Spencer St, reopening in early 2021. The Museum has many fascinating artefacts, tracing the history of the Victoria Police from the earliest days of colonisation.

After having my flight cancelled and spending an extra day in Melbourne, I needed to go somewhere I hadn't been before. And I was surprised by what I saw: a vampire slaying kit, Ned Kelly's ammo bag and the spent cartridges from the Walsh Street murders. A great little gem of a museum.

A very nice museum which is part of the Police headquarters. It includes part of the armour worn by the Kelly gang as well as other historical evidence of Police cases from down the ages. As an ex Police officer some of the artifacrs made me feel quite old!
Good little shop and a number of eateries in the same buildings as well as a small souvenir shop

This is quite a small museum but very interesting. It is actually on the first floor inside the World Trade Centre in Siddley Street. There is also a small cafe inside the WTC.

My partner is a police officer in the UK and he wanted to visit. I was happy to tag along. The museum is only small but the displays are informative and interesting. We enjoyed spending an hour here.

On the first floor of the World Trade Centre you wouldn’t know it was there unless you were looking for it!
Fascinating exhibits and stories from Ned Kelly to the Russell Street car bomb in 1986, together with other stories of criminals over the years,solved crimes and unsolved. Plus memorabilia and uniforms and the history of Victoria and Melbourne Police Forces.
At the moment there is also a moving story of some of the people caught up in the 2009 Victoria Bush Fires.
