The Cleveland Police Museum Offers An Unrivaled Glimpse At Cleveland’s Growth Over The Years

The downside of being human is that no matter how much we strive to learn, we will only ever experience things through our own perspective. Fortunately, we do have the ability to “take a walk in another man’s shoes,” or the opportunity to visualize the world through another’s eyes. You may think you know Cleveland, as you’ve lived here your whole life or you’ve gotten to know the culture since you settled in. However, neither you nor I know this city like our police do. These men and women know the city, its people, and its storied past intimately. And, much to our benefit, their story is preserved and open to the public at the Cleveland Police Museum.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

This museum is one of the best free museums in Cleveland, yet many have yet to pay it a visit. Its collections are fascinating, and they offer a glimpse into the history of our city that everyone deserves to see. When will you be planning your visit?
