Marias and Mörkös – Police Vehicles On and Off the Road

Police Museum, Tampere

  • 26.4.2024–4.12.2027

In the special exhibition “Marias and Mörkös”, vehicles on display include the world’s fastest police motorcycle and police cars from various decades.


The police move on land, in water and in the air – in little streets in cities, on the roads, in the fells and in waterways. In the Police Museum’s special exhibition, “Marias and Mörkös – Police Vehicles On and Off the Road”, visitors can see police cars, motorcycles, scooters, snow scooters and all-terrain vehicles.

For example, our exhibition includes the Saab 99 car, familiar for many, but also more rarely seen police vehicles, such as the world’s fastest police motorcycle, Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX. The oldest vehicle on display at the exhibition is a 1962 model Renault Goélette that was formerly used by Tampere police and that eventually ended up in TV2 children’s program ‘Pelle Hermanni’.

The patrol van ‘Maria’, mentioned in the name of the special exhibition, will also be on display, and museum visitors can take a seat in it. The other vehicle mentioned in the name of the exhibition, ‘Mörkö’, is not on site in the museum, but we present it in words and pictures. ‘Mörkö’ is the nickname for crowd control police forces’ dark personnel carrier van with protective covering.

At the Police Museum’s “Marias and Mörkös” exhibition, museum visitors get information both of the history and current situation of police vehicles. These days, police fleet includes armored vehicles, cars equipped for crime scene investigation, snow scooters, personal watercraft and unmanned aerial vehicles.

In the exhibition, we also inform about driver training of the police and its development. At all times, not only a vehicle suitable for the work assignment, but also a professional driver behind the wheel is needed.
