What a wonderful little museum in the Guildhall complex in the City of London, dedicated to policing in the financial district through the ages. It’s just one room, so it can get quite crowded. Not sure when I last so many interesting displays and so...More
We had been meaning to visit the museum for years, as my father in law was in the River Police during the war. We made an appointment with the curator and at last made the trip to Wapping. The museum is housed within the police...More
This Museum is tiny - packed with lots of information, so much to see and very busy as its a tourist must just round the corner from The Guildhall.
I enjoyed trying on the police helmets on display and also the range of objects used...More
I took a group of 14 teenagers to the museum and they all had a fantastic time. The museum is tiny, only one room, but it is crammed with interesting exhibits.
We loved competing in the facial recognition game and found the history of the...More
This was a very small museum, but full of very interesting exhibits and artefacts. Audio commentary and personal stories were available and worth listening too. Set in a very interesting area of London

The City of London Police (not the Met i.e. Scotland Yard) maintains a small but very informative museum near the Guild Hall. There is a virtual Victorian jail cell, a fine gallery of weapons and uniforms, and enough proper villains to satisfy any fan of...More
I went to the City of London Police Museum not really sure what to expect. However, I came away glad that I went there. It is small museum but has loads of information crammed into it. For example, there's displays on women in the police,...More
A very small but seemingly brand new museum with good audio tour that tells various stories regarding the history of local law enforcement. Not really a kids' museum as you might think. And it's free. If you are in the area, it's worth your 30...More
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

It is not specifically designed for children, but I think he should be fine while his brother has a chance to enjoy the detailed artefacts. There are lots of interesting cabinets for children, including the development of uniforms, the use of animals, vehicles etc. You can also pick up a City Children's Trail from the City Information Centre near St Paul's Cathedral with a child friendly map and lots of activities to keep him occupied while exploring the City.
