Fascinating journey into the past. You need an hour and a half to see all the exhibits and hear the stories from the curator. Dress up or end up in a cell. Great time to be had by all ages.
Well presented in the cells of the old police station showing local police history going back to the 19th century. Informative guides who were ex police officers made the whole visit interesting with their anecdotes and comments on the artefacts. Well worth a visit.
We went with the Warrington U3A group and were treated to an afternoon of great fun. The volunteer helpers were so enthusiastic it was hard not to get involved - there were handcuffs and truncheons on display as well as many other remarkable exhibits. It gave us a real incite into policing through the ages.
Amazing, the amount of effort that has gone into this is incredible! Retired officers who are proud of their continued contribution make this a fascinating experience.

We visited the policing museum during an open day at Warrington Police Station. We didn't know in advance there even was a museum but it turned out to be enthralling and full of useful snippets of information. There's even a mock-up Victorian cell so you can see how people used to 'spend the night' after one too many.
