Stuff For Kids:

Kids always uncover something cool at The New York City Police Museum.  They can test out the sirens used in an NYPD patrol car, take their friend’s “mug shot” in a police line-up and see what life is like on the other side of the bars in a real jail cell.  On display in the Weapons and Notorious Criminals exhibit are Al Capone’s Tommy gun, and infamous bank robber Willie Sutton’s handmade lock-picking kit.  Baseball fans will discover the origin of the New York Yankees logo in the original NYPD Medal of Valor.
