    Positives: - small free Museum :) - very nice and clear explanations of the hostess of the Museum. -Informative tour on the great French criminal cases, interesting anecdotes and artefacts. The papers provided to the entrance are very interesting and complete the visit. Negative points:-hospitality outrageous and humiliating the police officer in charge of the reception of the office! Indeed, this museum is located in a police station. To access it, through an impressive safety feature. Once you enter the building, you're missing the reception of the station to access the Museum on the 3rd floor. Official hospitality being in full discussion, we quietly not to disturb. Unpleasant as possible and abusing his position, he hails by us lowering on the fact to say hello, he considers that it is a lack of respect and ranting us several times that we are in State of emergency and plan vigipirate (?). We apologize and we explain that we thought that the reception was at the Museum and not at the police station, which is logically be the case, it continues these reproaches and eventually brutally, returns as if nothing happened, to its discussion. Cognoscenti, we will access the Museum where we will be very well received by a lovely hostess. -The Museum would need to be updated. It is a pity that there are only little information about the modern investigative techniques or large contemporary Affairs.

    The building also houses the central office of the 5th and 6th districts. On arrival it is immediately in the mood. The Museum is on the 3rd floor. We got a home out of the ordinary, almost custom. It takes at least 45 minutes to go around, a lot more for lovers. You can especially see collections of evidence, from photos of crime scenes, of weapons of famous crimes. If you like we exhausted all the "classic" Parisian museums, this one is doing.

    You will spend a most interesting couple of hours in this museum. Of course, you have to be interested in crime – not committing it, but reading true crime. It is not though a museum for children. Con...  more »

    Very interesting free Museum about an hour of visit is not very big but really worth the visit. Dr. petiot landru anarchists a guillotine blade dating back to the revolution, and so on, I would recommend.

    Paris Police Museum. Incumbent Paris police officers who pass there in the police station. Of the old uniform and it was very interesting.

    "A few interesting pieces!" Museum located within the office of the fifth district, due to the plan Vigipirate search bags before entering. You go through the home, then lift to the 3rd floor. Friendly, visit thematic exhibits and some windows and interesting pieces (Landru, Dr. Petiot...). Free entry, animation 'experts' for children, a visit that's worth the look.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
