  • If you manage to find access to the police station of the 5th arrondissement that houses it, pass the excavations, do not back down in front of the reception room, climb the 3 floors of a building flowering good the 70s (elevator broke down), you will discover a museum in the multiple advantages: - it is free - it is run by welcoming and helpful people - it presents a rich and interesting historical collection on the creation and development of the PP, on the most famous cases that pp police officers have and the creation of the scientific police. A more attractive set design, a guided tour through the collection, a historical coherence more linked to the chronology and above all the premises more made to welcome the public would certainly give a deserved boost to this museum.

  • the Museum is very rich, it flies over the whole history of the police in Paris a lot of showcases and documents this visit is much more appealing with a guide that tells you the little and the big story

  • I loved it. At least 1-2 hours to check it out. Some information provided in English. Really interesting if you like history and crime.
  • Excellent display of memorabilia. Very useful for anyone who wants to understand the history of France; and especially how the law enforcement as well as regulatory authorities in Paris have developed. I had a limitation in that I could only read those placards that were displayed in English. For someone with a good understanding of French, there is a wealth of information!
