Housed in the former imposing American Citibank,
Built on the site of what was once the National City Bank of New York, the Beijing Police Museum displays over 1500 artifacts. Some of the more memorable include a cracked skull, Qing dynasty torture and execution instruments, declassified investigation material and interactive games for children.
Though any reference to the sensitive subject of modern-day police corruption and keeping law and order during the Cultural Revolution are (unsurprisingly) absent, there are still a good number of crime scene exhibits and ‘cultural relics’ to make this lesser-known museum well worth a visit.
