The Police Museum is temporarily closed – read more here.
The Police Museum explains more about what the police do and the role they play in a democratic society. In our new exhibition The Trigger – 150 years of police photography, visitors can take a look at a selection of crime scene photos and mug shots among hundreds of photos of individuals when the police intervened in their lives from the 19 the century to present time.
The visitor can also step into the shoes of a forensic scientist or learn more about hate crime. In the playroom children can dress up and sit in a real police car and motorcycle with working intercoms. There are also a number of riddles intended to help children learn about the police.
