Greater Manchester Police Museum

57a Newton Street Northern Quarter, Greater Manchester, UK M1 1ET

Explore Manchesters hidden past a labyrinth of alleyways and slums, interrupted only by the huge mills casting shadows below. An eerie underworld, where police officers were kept busy apprehending unsavoury characters of all ages.

The Greater Manchester Police Museum and Archives enables you to experience what life was really like for these officers, in what was once a busy Victorian Police Station. Youll also see how times have changed and how policing has evolved to meet todays needs.

Located in the historic Northern Quarter of Manchester, the museum was one of the city's earliest police stations and has been lovingly restored to reflect the reality of policing in the late 1800's/ 1900's. See where Manchester's criminals were charged, fingerprinted and discover the cells that were often packed with twelve men on a busy night. Why not have a seat on the cell beds with their wooden pillows!

Admire the polished wood panels and stained glass in the Magistrates Courtroom and experience how inmates would have felt standing in the dock!
