This permanent interactive exhibition allows kids to get their mitts all over NYPD-inspired activities and paraphernalia. Preschoolers can mix and match city sounds (like wailing sirens and the distinctive trot of police-horse hooves) while older children can learn how to decipher radio codes. And of course, no tyke will want to miss climbing into the driver's seat of a police car.
