The Museum contains cars, motorcycles, real-life jail cells from various eras, and artifacts from 1850 to present. Children will love the Museum - they can sit on a real-life motorcycle and use the siren, hop into our black and white patrol vehicle and check out the inside of our helicopter! Adults will appreciate the rich history of the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, Old Town, and the Wild West throughout the Museum. Ask the docent to take a picture of your entire family - locked in a jail cell!
