The Police Museum


NOTE: The museum is temporarily closed to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The Police Museum engages its visitors in a discussion about security in our society. Like the police themselves, it has a mission to fight crime and keep people safe. Children are invited to experience the police through dress up, role playing, and problem solving.
Surrounding area: The Police Museum is located on Museivägen (museum road), east of Stockholm. The surrounding area is open nature on one side and a cluster of museums on the other side facing the water.
Age groups: The museum is most appropriate for children from 3 years old.
Exhibits: The museum has different exhibits that look into every facet of the Police Authority in Sweden. The majority of the information written in the museum is in Swedish with only some highlights written in English.

Police, Police! (Temporarily closed)

is an exhibit specially dedicated to children. It is made up of an outdoor traffic park and playground, as well as an interactive indoor area. The traffic park is a place where you can rent pedal cars and learn about the rules of traffic (Additional costs: SEK 20 for 20 minutes). The indoor area has a real police car and motorcycle with working intercoms. There are toys and dress up materials as well as a number of riddles intended to help children learn about the police. There is also a scavenger hunt about what to do if you get lost. The hunt is best suited for children between 6 and 10 years old. Younger children can play with the help of an adult.
