No reviews, be the first!

If, like many people, crime, criminals or the law fascinates you, you will love the exhibitions, photographs, stories and artifacts at the Victoria Police Museum.

This undervalued and little known museum has the largest collection of Kelly Gang armor in Australia. Ned Kelly was a Victorian bushranger in the late 1800s, whose daring and infamy saw him become a legend in Australian folklore and many famous paintings, books and films have been made about his short but notorious life.

From old, famous criminals through to the latest in forensic technology, the museum takes visitors on a journey through the social history of policing and crime in Melbourne and Victoria.
