Move the Police Museum to Buckle Street?

Stuff reports:

New Zealand’s oldest purpose-built station is up for sale.

It is the first time the historic Wellington landmark, with a Rateable Value (RV) of $1.5 million, has been placed on the open market

The Buckle St, category A heritage listed commercial premises, was built in 1894 by prisoners. It was home to The Dominion Museum and National Art Gallery until the completion of Te Papa in the late 1990s.

Why not make it the home of the Police Museum? No one ever visits the Museum at the current site in the Police College.

You could have a memorial to fallen police officers there, which would fit in with the other memorials next door.

In that venue, it would get huge number of visitors.

The Police should look at this. Would be fantastic to have the Police Museum get more profile and visits.
