Telling the real life stories of policing in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Established in 1908, the New Zealand Police Museum uses original evidence and Police objects and technology to tell the very personal stories behind the events, disasters and crimes that have galvanised our nation. Displays include weapons used by criminals, evidence from murder investigations, stories of outstanding feats of detection and forensic science, Police tools and artefacts, and major historical and social events like the 1981 Springbok Tour and the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior. Although the Museum sometimes tells the darker side of New Zealand history, we also strive to provide a positive forum for interaction with Police and their vision of 'Safer Communities Together'.
