More information about Queensland Police Museum
We are located on the ground floor of Queensland police headquarters. The exhibition space incorporates 25 displays illustrating a range of policing themes. Our public programs include a tailored education program and monthly presentations featuring guest speakers from historical and crime-solving fields. We utilise our archival resources, exhibitions and public programs to compare policing of today and of yesterday.
In 1864 Queensland became the fifth state to gain its own police department and since then every element of policing practice has evolved dramatically.
