Polizeimuseum Stuttgart

The Police Museum Stuttgart = An exciting journey through time into history. In impressive and fascinating theme islands, the Polizeihistorische Verein Stuttgart e.V. presents the history of the police and the state capital on the basis of numerous original exhibits and objects of crime in the premises of the Stuttgart police headquarters. Spectacular crimes from two centuries that shook Stuttgart and the region, as well as their clarification, are documented in an exciting and moving way. Former police officers with expert knowledge are the museum guides – it couldn’t be more authentic.

The Rolling Museum is not only the second mainstay of the Stuttgart Police Museum, but it is on the road almost all year round with its vehicles and the classic car team for the museum and the police at numerous events as a brand ambassador. Police history can be experienced in the literal sense.

Experience Stuttgart police history in a tangible way!

The Polizeihistorisches Verein Stuttgart e.V., founded in 2007. (PHV) currently has around 300 members (not only active and former police members, but also historically interested people from all areas). He has set himself the task of collecting and archiving police historical documents and exhibits that have particularly historical references to the state capital. The overarching goal is to promote understanding of the socio-political role and tasks of the police as well as the attachment of citizens to their police. The active dialogue about the past is intended to build a bridge of understanding to the present and make interesting and previously unknown encounters with Stuttgart police history possible.

In order to achieve these demanding goals and tasks, it was clear from the beginning the establishment and maintenance of a police museum in Stuttgart, which should be the center of encounters and many activities. After 7 years of planning and construction phases, the time had finally come in February 2015: In the presence of numerous guests of honor, the then Minister of the Interior and patron of the Police Museum, Reinhold Gall, set the “museum traffic light” to green with a symbolic gesture and gave the starting sign for the Stuttgart Police Museum.

The PHV shows numerous exhibits, documents and media in the original about the crime and police events of the last 200 years in the state capital, authentically explained by museum guides, some of whom were themselves affected by the cases. And this is only part of the image archive of over 90,000 historical images, a library with more than 1,000 books, journals and essays as well as approx. 300 sound and film documents of the Stuttgart police. Together with the Stuttgart Police Headquarters, the association operates the over 240 m² Police Museum Stuttgart, which we cordially invite you to visit and promise exciting guided tours. Regular events on police or social topics, visits and also social events complement the offer of the PHV. And of course the second mainstay, the “ROLLING MUSEUM”, with which we make police history experienceable with our classic cars on tour in the literal sense.

As part of our crime tours, we (un) take you to original crime scenes in Stuttgart and revive the events and crimes of that time before your eyes! Exciting – promised. The Police Museum Stuttgart, which is jointly sponsored by the Stuttgart Police Headquarters, has already received the LOTTO Museum Award Baden-Württemberg for its outstanding museum work, an award we are proud of.

The Polizeimuseum Stuttgart does not have fixed opening hours. Instead, it offers guided tours for groups of ten or more, which need to be arranged in advance. Individual visitors and small groups can join pre-scheduled tours. For more information or to arrange a visit, you can contact the museum directly via email
