Seattle Metropolitan Police Museum

View a vast array of antique documents, photographs, weaponry, uniforms, and much more that assisted police in the taming of Seattle from its violent and corrupt frontier beginnings to what has now developed into one of the most professional law enforcement agencies in the United States. A children’s interactive area lets kids try on police uniforms, examine a real jail cell, and use their imaginations.
