Visiting the Cleveland Police Museum
Admission is always FREE!!
Welcome to the Cleveland Police Museum! We are located inside the Justice Center, located at 1300 Ontario Street, Cleveland, OH, 44113. The Museum is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 am – 2 pm. Tours are also available by appointment. If the Cleveland Municipal School District is closed due to inclement weather the Museum will be closed.
Visiting: Because we are in the Justice Center, all visitors must go through security screenings. Below is a guide to help make your visit easier.
Parking: Parking is available in metered spots on nearby city streets or several surface lots within one or two blocks from our entrance. Visitors can be dropped off near the Ontario Avenue entrance to the Justice Center, but cars cannot stand or park along that section of Ontario Avenue.
Fees: There are no fees to enter the Justice Center or the Cleveland Police Museum.
Note: The Museum is closed in January and February.
