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

A very interesting little museum. Although small there were several interesting exhibits. The collection of handcuffs was very impressive. A good place to spend an hour.

Well laid out and interesting museum. Especially liked the courtroom with the original case stories and hearing a case recording with the models in situ. Being free makes all the difference to attracting visitors and most people will give a donation.

Very interesting and well laid out museum. Liked the old cells and the courtroom which had told a case with very realistic wax characters. Well worth a visit.
