Also on display is a vehicle and motorcycle. Must see the bomb squad uniform and it is free to the public. Children would like it very much.

Charming retired policemen are on staff to assist you through the museum. If you are lucky enough you can be taken upstairs to the old jail. Don't be in a hurry as they love to tell their experience first hand. It's interesting and a beautiful historic building in downtown Phoenix.
