This museum is a great little free museum that is packed full of easy to read information and history. Lots of exhibits. The museum is very quiet so you can wander around at your own pace. It is hidden away in the Roma St Police station. However there is signs for it when you enter. Heaps of public transport close by including the Roma St Train Station and Bus Stop

Hidden Gem. Not the biggest museum, but has a lot of interesting information. Close to transport, located withing the Police Headquarters immediately across the road from the Brisbane Transit Centre (Roma St. Station). No one else in the museum when attended so not hard to take time and casually look at exhibits.

We stumbled on it by accident and had a very intriguing hour and a half there reading many displays. They have a very cute gift shop which is only open on Wed-Thur but you can peek inside and see some fun items which would make unusual souvenirs. We were disappointed they weren't selling any confiscated items which would have been fun;-) The new display was half done, we will definitely be back to check it out!

This museum is conveniently located in Roma Street, in the same building that houses the HQ of the Queensland Police Dept. It’s virtually across the road from the Roma Street train station and Brisbane Transit Centre.
It’s free to enter and there are zero formalities to enter; just walk into the building and follow the signs. We came with a group of teenage children with National Youth Science Forum and they were welcomed and given about half an hour talk on the body in the suitcase murder that highlighted the use of forensics in solving murders.
Large bags are to be left on unattended shelf racks just outside the museum.
Also just outside the museum is a little police shop, selling polo t shirts, soft toys, bags with the logo of the Qld Police Dept.
This is a small museum, that you can easily cover in about 1 - 1.5 hours. It’s been lovingly curated and congratulations to whoever did it, because you never lose interest as you wander from display to display. It includes the entire history of policing in Queensland from its early days in the mid 19th century right up until today and covers things like forensics, medals and awards, unsolved murders, modes of transport and highlights some of the most notorious crimes such as the bombing of the Whiskey Au Go Go nightclub in 1973. The role of aboriginal police units is also given the coverage that it deserves.
What we found most interesting though, was the changing styles of police uniforms over the years.. The woman’s uniform of 1971 is particularly amusing with the funny little hat and short skirt!
All the exhibits are nicely presented and easy to follow, with each section dealing with a different aspect of policing.
Clean, safe and well maintained public toilets are easy to find on the ground floor, and while there is no cafe on site, there are plenty in the near vicinity.
We were the only people there on a Monday afternoon and were well looked after by an enthusiastic staff.
Policing in Qld has a colourful and interesting history, and this museum is well worth a visit if you have the time.

This is a hidden gem in Brisbane, located on the ground floor of Police HQ and definitely worth a visit. Lots of police history here and interesting stories. Open Monday to Thursday with free admission.

Located at ground floor of Police Headquarters Brisbane, authentic location. Be aware of the limited opening times, there is no entry fee and in my opinion is superior to both the Sydney & Melbourne police museums. Excellent exhibits, well documented and really liked the simulated murder scene.

平日朝9時から見学することができます。なんてったって警察署の中にありますので、なんか緊張しますが、無料ですっと入っていけばいいだけです。意外と見に来る人はいます。アボリジニの警官の話などが出てくるので、

Var innom politi museumet for å ha noe å gjøre. Det var ganske interessant å se deres historie opp igjennom århundrene! Anbefaler alle å dra dit!

The museum is conveniently located on the ground floor at 200 Roma Street, in the same building that houses the HQ of the Queensland Police Dept. It’s virtually across the road from the Roma Street train station and Brisbane Transit Centre.

It’s free to enter and is open Mon-Thurs 9am - 4.00pm, but closed on Fridays, public hols and the period between Christmas and New Year. There are zero formalities to enter; just walk into the building and follow the signs. There isn’t even anyone on duty to welcome you, or give you a guide book etc, you’re pretty much free to just wander in and spend as much time there as you like.

Large bags are supposed to be left on unattended shelf racks just outside the museum, but they didn’t seem to mind me taking in my small backpack nor my wife her handbag. Strange as this may seem, given that we were in what one would think would be one of the most secure places in Bris., we were reluctant to simply leave our bags on wooden shelves with no-one in attendance to look after them.

Also just outside the museum is a little police shop, selling polo t shirts, soft toys, bags etc, with the logo of the Qld Police Dept. We bought a little soft toy and promptly named it after Terry Lewis, once upon a time Sir Terry Lewis, the esteemed Qld Police Commissioner, before he fell from grace during the 90s and spent 10 years in jail for corruption (needless to say, he doesn’t feature in the museum, although you can see his name listed in the directory of all police officers who have served in the force).

This is a small museum, that you can easily cover in about 1 - 1.5 hours. It’s been lovingly curated and congrats to whoever did it, because you never lose interest as you wander from display to display. It includes the entire history of policing in Queensland from its early days in the mid 19th century right up until today and covers things like forensics, medals and awards, unsolved murders, modes of transport and highlights some of the most notorious crimes such as the bombing of the Whiskey Au Go Go nightclub in 1973. The role of aboriginal police units is also given the coverage that it deserves.

What we found most interesting though, was the changing styles of police uniforms over the years, you can see pics that I’ve included with this review. The woman’s uniform of 1971 is particularly amusing with the funny little hat and short skirt!

All the exhibits are nicely presented and easy to follow, with each section dealing with a different aspect of policing.

Clean, safe and well maintained public toilets are easy to find on the ground floor, and while there is no cafe on site, there are plenty in the near vicinity.

We were the only people there on a quiet Thurs morning in mid December, so I’m assuming that this museum doesn’t get a lot of visitors, which is good in one way, as you can enjoy it at your leisure without the crowds, and really take your time to absorb all it has to offer.

Policing in Qld has a colourful and interesting history, and this museum is well worth a visit if you have the time.
