From the largest collection of Kelly Gang armour in Australia to forensic evidence from some of Melbourne's most notorious crimes, the Victoria Police Museum presents visitors with an intriguing insight into the social history of policing and crime.

Learn what life would have been like as a police officer in the 19th century, discover some of the shady underworld figures lurking around Melbourne's streets in the 1920s and explore the diversity of policing in the 21st century.

Exhibitions at the Victoria Police Museum include the iconic armour worn by members of the Kelly Gang; the remains of the car used in the Russell Street headquarters bombing and police files on some of Melbourne's most infamous criminals, including 'Squizzy' Taylor.

The Museum hosts a number of temporary exhibitions throughout the year. Check the website for details on current exhibitions.
