Hidden away, but well worth the visit. FREE. Displays of past uniforms and equipment; evidence from cases; room set ups from the past. Plenty of staff to explain what it means and to bring the facts to life. Particularly enjoyed the cells area and magistrate...More

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.

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
