  • The Calcutta Police Museum is a little museum dedicated entirely to the historical activities of Police - pre and post British era! There is no need for fees or registration to gain access inside. The only thing you need to do is to fill up some initials on the attendance register at the entrance and to keep your baggage outside on a table-top. There are about 5 rooms showcasing all the items of historical importance. Most of the items are concealed within glass cases and the incidents related to it are vividly described. The items at display especially the guns and sharp instruments are worth having a look. There's a suit kept at display used by personnel for diffusing bombs. I found it quite interesting. There are several rock carved idols confiscated by the department from illegal trading which are absolutely delightful to watch. Please make a note that: PHOTOGRAPHY IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Do not make any attempt to take any sort of photographs.
  • Many historical things used by freedom fighters... Old guns bombs swords knives. evolution of police system.
  • If You want to know the history of police department,you must come here. Here you can see different type of antique firearms, grenade,bullet making instrument which were used by freedom fighters and police personnels.If you watch everything thoroughly,it will take 1-1.30 hour to visit the place. Inside photography is strictly prohibited.
  • It's a good place. Many interesting history can be seen here. Different types of guns, medals,their value, bombs, etc,that means a very rare collections can be seen here! Go for it at free of cost!
  • A great place to upgrade knowledge on the police department from the start. Good amount of valuable and interesting information available. There is no entry fee to get inside the museum. Couple of things to keep in mind 1. You cannot take pictures inside the museum. 2. You cannot carry any bag along with you inside. Located at Manicktala, Kolkata. Just reach Manicktala and ask anyone and you will be directed well. The building was previously house to the grear Raja Rammohan Roy.
