50 Years of Excellence In 2010!
The American Police Hall of Fame and Museum originated in 1960 in Northport Florida. The Museum was the achievement of a dream of its founder, Police Chief Gerald S. Arenberg. Through the passion of Chief Arenberg the museum began to educate thousands of visitors each year and soon outgrew its existing facility.
In 1990 Chief Arenberg completed the sale and remodeling of a 38,000 square foot three story building in Miami Florida. The building was the former home of the F.B.I. and to showcase the transformation Arenberg had a police car mounted three stories high on the side of the building. Over the years the “building with the car on it” became a local landmark.
By 2001 the museum had once again outgrown its facility and the search for a larger facility was under way. By Spring of 2003 a new 50,000 square foot facility on 5 acres of land in Titusville Florida, a.k.a. the Space Coast, was constructed and the move in was complete. The new facility features a beautiful indoor memorial, many new hands-on exhibits, a 24 lane hi-tech indoor gun range, helicopter rides and an oversized training room for law enforcement training, seminars, banquets, services and more.
