Greater Manchester Police MuseumManchester, Greater Manchester
At the Greater Manchester Police Museum, discover the stories of cops and robbers while learning loads about local history in one of the city’s earliest police stations.
Step back in time to a hidden city of slums and unruly alehouses. You’ll see what life was really like for the police who worked there by exploring where criminals were charged, fingerprinted and the cells where they would often spend the night - sometimes 12 men at a time with nothing but wooden pillows!
During the Victorian era, police were kept busy apprehending all sorts of unsavoury characters in the shadows, so discover their tales and imagine yourself venturing into the darkness with nothing but your badge to protect you! The building itself is also an impressive sight, especially the Magistrate’s Courtroom. Just be sure to check ahead as there are limited opening times.
