Very interesting exhibit. I would highly recommend it to visitors or residents. Not an extensive collection but was educational for all of us and any questions we asked, were answered by staff.

Not very big, but lots of information. This is where the Miranda warning started. Reviews saying yiou can sit in his chair are not correct. Free and centrally located. Definitely worth the time.

I really enjoyed seeing all the history that Phoenix PD has preserved throughout their history. My favorite part of the museum is the tranquility of the memorial room.

It was manned by ex serving members of the police force who were very pleased to help visitors. It gave an insight of policing from the old wild west days to the present.

Phoenix Police Museum is located in Downtown Phoenix. This Museum is well worth the visit, the origin of Miranda Rights are chronicled and the staff is amazing.
