National Law Enforcement Museum

National Law Enforcement Museum

The National Law Enforcement Museum at the Motorola Solutions Foundation Building is committed to preserving the history of American law enforcement and sharing the experiences of service and sacrifice for generations to come.

The Museum is working to expand and enrich the relationship shared by law enforcement and the community through educational journeys, immersive exhibitions and insightful, interactive programs that provide a deeper understanding of law enforcement's vital service to our country.

The Museum's befitting location at Judiciary Square and close to Capital One Arena in our nation's capital marks the first time a national museum dedicated to telling the story of American law enforcement has a permanent home.

Discover the most interactive museum in DC!

More than 25,000 objects spanning over 300 years of American law enforcement history.

Daily museum highlight tours led by our resident law enforcement museum guides.

Experience the L3Harris PatrolSim™ patrol driving simulator, and the Decision-Making Training Simulator, a virtual experience showcasing the quick decisions that must be made daily by law enforcement.
