  • 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 »
  • My child was bonkers to see the last guillotine blade used in France and we stumbled upon this museum. Located in the middle of a working police station, this little museum is worth 30 minutes if for ...  more »
  • Unlikely place on the top floor of a police station, the welcome is warm. All times are mentioned, such as the period of the Revolution or of major criminal cases. I loved a Dog Rescuer martial-looking photography! But it's a Museum in the former which deserves a big thumb or subsidies to move to the 21st century!

  • It's a historical museum and well placed in Paris.
  • Located in the police station, the place is worthy of interest. It's a quiet Museum, with a good reception. Certain objects or parts are funny or disturbing. The visit is free.

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.
