Musee de Prefecture de Police (Police Museum)

Paris has been the scene of many infamous crimes over the years, and there's also a grand tradition of flamboyant, idiosyncratic investigators solving those crimes.

The Police Museum captures some of the historical characters and evidence behind the struggle between those who ran afoul of the law and those who brought them to justice. For the morbid, exhibits also include some more old-fashioned instruments of justice such as the guillotine.

Unfortunately, the vast collection of Inspector Clouseau memorabilia is currently out on loan.

Getting there

The museum is near the Maubert Mutualité Metro station.
