  • i must say its a wee museum but well worth a visit. Full of genuine items, articles from the most notorious crimes to the ones you haven't heard about and a really intimate insight into the history of policing and crime in Glasgow. A must see free museum, in the centre of the city, particularly for anyone interested in crime. It's the real deal. Has display of police uniforms from around the world also. The guys that run it are really helpful. Google it, to find address as otherwise you may walk past it without noticing. Been twice over last year. There's always something new to notice, even though it's very small. Part of its charm. Please leave a like.
  • The location is quaint but packed with lots of real memorabilia donated to the patrons and collected over many years from all over the world as well. The knowledge that the gentlemen looking after the establishment is amazing. Really worth going past and having a grrat discussion about some history.
  • Small museum but a great little place. Guys that run it are friendly and knowledgeable. Worth a visit. Fun for the kids too.
  • Enjoyed my visit there today. Staff very helpful.
  • Despite friendly and keen staff, not much here to see. Mainly uniforms and badges, needs the more exciting historical exhibits kept elsewhere.
