Police Museum

EXCURSIONS / Museums / Nicosia / Police Museum
The museum, near police headquarters in Lefkosia (Nicosia), was originally founded in 1933 as a Criminal Museum by the then British Chief of Police of the colonial government.

A substantial part of the museum is dedicated to the history of the Cyprus Police, with exhibits dating back to the early years of the British period up to the present times.

On view are police arms, uniforms, police equipment, police vehicles, musical instruments of the Police Band, records and documents.

Apart from the purely police - related and crime - related exhibits, the museum also houses some very interesting items and documents from important periods of the modern history of Cyprus, including the 1955 - 1959 anti - colonial struggle and World War II.
