Museum Alpenstadt Chur
Graubünden Police Museum
The Police Museum in Chur shows how organised units of gamekeepers of the 19th century developed into the canton’s current, multi-role police force. The story is illustrated with historical objects such as uniforms and arms, along with burglars’ break-in implements, money smugglers’ false-bottomed suitcases and murder weapons. Many of these original objects are linked to historical crimes, or bear direct witness to spectacular occurrences and important events in the history of the canton’s police force. The “police cinema” exhibits short films on the history of the force and its day-to-day work. Exhibits relating to the fight against narcotics are likewise on display in the museum.
