Forget dusty display cases, the Denver Police Museum has big plans to put you in a cop’s shoes


The Denver Police Museum rolled out big plans Thursday for a new, multi-story building across the street from the National Western Complex that will feature virtual reality, crime-scene experiments and a memorial chapel for fallen officers.

“Dusty old display cases — that’s not what this is going to be about,” said Lance Nading, a volunteer with the Denver Police Museum whose father was killed in the line of duty in 1971. “Instead, you’re more likely to have interactions like flying a virtual helicopter than seeing an old gun.”
