The Museum is Open!

In the heart of downtown, Washington, DC, the exciting new National Law Enforcement Museum at the Motorola Solutions Foundation Building is now open. This immersive new Museum offers visitors a one-of-a-kind, “walk in the shoes” experience of what it’s like to be a law enforcement officer.

Visitors from all walks of life will get the chance to discover the many facets of American law enforcement through educational interactive exhibits and workshops that delve into everything from the meticulous and messy world of forensics and DNA analysis to how law enforcement is portrayed in pop culture.

They’ll hear real-life, first-hand accounts of what it’s like to be an officer in our Officers’ Stories exhibit, perhaps take part in an officer Training Simulator or determine what it’s like to make split-second, life-altering decisions in a 9-1-1 Emergency Ops simulation.

The Museum features a world-class collection of more than 20,000 artifacts that depicts American law enforcement, historic events and pop culture. Each object helps illustrate the important role American Law Enforcement plays in society, as well as its invaluable contribution to American history. With a mission of helping strengthen the relationship between law enforcement officers and the communities they serve, the Museum also offers a host of educational and community programs for visitors of all ages.
