Opened in 2017 and designed by Dara Lynne Lenehan, it covers the history of policing in Ireland (excluding Northern Ireland), including medieval watchmen, the Baronial Constabulary, County Constabulary, the Dublin Metropolitan Police, the Royal Irish Constabulary and the Civic Guard/Garda Síochána.
Commissioner Nóirín O'Sullivan officially opened it in December 2016, but legal disputes meant that the public could not visit until August 2017. It replaced an older museum which had been housed in the Record Tower.
