The Victoria Police Museum reflects the work of the Victorian police force since its inception in 1853.
The collection of artifacts ranges from those relating to the Ned Kelly Gang outbreak of the 1870’s through to the contemporary investigations of events such as the Russell Street Bombing and Hoddle Street Shootings of the 1980’s.
See the armour of Kelly Gang members, Dan Kelly and Steve Hart. Learn why 1870's Detective John Christie was known as Victoria Police’s Sherlock Holmes.
See over 150 years of stories and displays of crime, justice, courage, forensic techniques and examples of how police are making Victoria a safer place to live.
Other interesting equipment on display include the breathalyzer machine, old uniforms, a fingerprint display, a motorcycle and communications equipment.
To miss it would be a crime!
