The American Police Hall of Fame was founded in 1960. It is the nation's first museum to honor law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. The museum features exhibits, vehicles, simulators, a forensics area, law enforcement equipment, a state-of-the art gun range and even helicopter rides.
The museum preserves law enforcement history with early equipment and firearms, crude criminal weapons, even an electric chair and gas chamber. A crime scene will test your skills at figuring out who did it with CSI-type tools. A forensic lab takes into the elements of crime-solving. Over 10,000 artifacts are on hand including: antique and modern police cars, motorcycles, and the actual police unit from the movie "Blade Runner."
The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is $13 for adults; $8 for children 4-12; $10 for senior citizens and military; Free for law enforcement officers, family survivors and members of the museum.
