Located in the first precinct station house, built in 1901, the museum exhibits police equipment from throughout the years, such as pistols, uniforms, and vehicles, along with really fun stuff such as master burglar Willie Sutton's lock picks and a machine gun used by Al Capone. A permanent exhibit chronicling the role the NYPD played in the response to the September 11 terrorist attacks is located on the third floor.
