If you’re a Museum Member, you’ll know that one of the perks of being a Member is free admission to the New York City Police Museum. Unfortunately, the New York City Police Museum was affected by Superstorm Sandy last year and was forced to close their location at 100 Old Slip. They have been closed since.
This past week, we received great news that while they rebuild their permanent home, they will be temporarily opened at 45 Wall Street, Mondays-Saturdays from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
Take advantage of your Membership by visiting their current special exhibits which include: Lieutenant Joseph Petrosino and his heroic stand against the Black Hand, a photography exhibit of rare images from AP photographers documenting 9/11, and an exhibit on the history of policing from the Dutch rattlewatch of 1650’s to modern NYPD.
