We had the best day at the Police Museum. It was built in 1911. The building is amazing! It has a junior officer discovery zone for the kids and 3 floors of historical exhibitions. The kids spent a LONG time in that jail cell. I think it would be a really fun place to host a kids b-day party. Honestly, we were the only kids in the building and stayed for 3 hours. The boys were even entertained by the video upstairs showing how bombs in NYC are detected & found. It was perfect for a cold day. I was able to hang out with my girlfriend and talk while the kids were busy playing. I didn't have to worry about them running off. The exhibits are separate from the kids play zone.
Walking over to the museum from school.
