While we’ve kept our collections safe during our closure for public safety, we’ve missed being able to share the stories and artifacts on display with visitors from across the country. In fact, we’ve taken this temporary closure as an opportunity to reflect on our offerings and to craft new and improved experiences for you.

New offerings

  • Walking the Beat: A Walking Tour of Presidential Assassinations and the Rise of Federal Law Enforcement – Oct. 8, Nov. 5, Nov. 19, Dec. 3
  • Daily museum highlights tours available on general admission days led by our resident law enforcement museum guides.
  • Daily “snapshot” workshops that provide a peek into the Museum’s educational offerings on general admission days.
  • A new patrol driving simulator, the only of its kind in the country not housed in a police training academy, which joins our existing decision-making simulator experience.
  • Days of the week reserved for private group visits so our team can provide you with the exclusive experience of having the museum to yourself.

We want you to have the best experience possible when visiting the National Law Enforcement Museum. Whether we’re welcoming you back, or welcoming you for the first time, we look forward to seeing you soon.
