South African Police Museum displays various transport vehicles and methods used by the SAPS to perform security and emergency services over the past 100 years. This includes motorcycles, boats, stuffed camels, horse drawn ambulances and armored personnel carriers. The original SAPS Museum, located across Volkstem St, contains old SAPS weapons and history on crime scenes and the riots of 1976. It has been closed for renovation for the past three years but it is possible to arrange a guided tour (with the staff at the current SAPS museum next door) if you have a large group or are particularly interested.
