What a great little museum! Brilliant exhibits and some great reading to do if you’re interested in the history of Tetbury and the constabulary there. Takes 1-2 hours to look round thoroughly and I’d recommend it!

This is a small spot and a good place to explore for a bit. When my kids were in the 5 to 11 age range they would have enjoyed seeing this. They are older now and we not with me but I still enjoyed it!...More

I took a small group from Swindon to visit this rather quaint but very interesting museum, it is a step back in time & real piece of social history, well worth a visit & what’s more it is free. Allow at least an hour.

Worth a visit; not only are there exhibits of police memorabilia, including a bike and series of handcuffs, but one of the old cells is mocked up with a sleeping drunk who is snoring loudly! Upstiare the large Council Chamber doubled as a magistrates' court,...More

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. Did you also spot the old telephone which you can pick up and listen in to callers to the old police station? All real cases taken from our archives!

A small but interesting museum of the history of Gloucestershire Constabulary on the ground floor, including the police cells, and a reconstruction of the Magistrates (Police Court) on the first floor contained within the old Police and Magistrates Court building.

A great way to while away an hour visiting the museum and displays. A lot of effort has gone into creating an interesting and educational venture for all ages.

A small but beautifully preserved building giving a very detailed account into the police and court services of yesteryear. A labour of love in the community and a must for those who visit the beautiful Town.

Thank you for taking the time to respond and offer such a supportive review. We do try our best, with very limited resources, to offer an interesting insight to the social history of Tetbury and the Glos Constabulary
