Must visit here if you are interested in the history of the police. Absolutely thrilling tour around here and loved every minute. Something for all ages and very knowledgeable tour guides. Very helpful. Very interactive and hands on. Great for people who have SPLD.
Really good museum. Very interesting and helpful staff, mostly retired police officers. We stayed for a hour, but you could probably spend a little more time than we did. I would highly recommend this museum. Only open on Tuesdays.
Wow. Brilliant little museum. Shows the development of the Police in Greater Manchester. Forensic room, prison cells, uniforms and a court. Not only that the volunteers are exceptional with a wealth of knowledge. Highly recommended for all ages.
We had a friendly tour guide and the general atmosphere was amazing. The police gadgets on show all tell a story and the hidden dummy in the cell gave me a fright. Brilliant day! Even stopped at the gift shop to buy some goodies.
We visited on 30th of October 2018 and we had an absolutely amazing time and to be able to see genuine items and meeting volunteers from the police force was an honour. So much information to see and read and how much things have changed...More

One of the best museum I have ever visited! Small but beautiful and full of history and interesting facts. The best thing is the staff, retired Police Officers that really show their passion and knowledge about the history and their own experience on the field!...More

Not sure.. when I went it was quite quiet and I seem to remember that they were showing people handcuffs and truncheons and stuff. I think the answer is yes provided you don't go in the height of the holidays when they may be too stretched to give everyone individual attention
