The Glasgow Police Museum

by Jemma Fletcher (follow)
A historic look into Britain's first police force suitable for the whole family!

The Glasgow Police Museum is an independent museum set up and manned by volunteer members of The Glasgow Police Heritage Society.

Read a Glasgow Mum's review here.


The museum contains old objects and texts that give a historical insight into the people and events, which contributed to Britain's first police force.

As well as as history education, there is an interactive part of the exhibition where the kids can play at being mini detectives to find all of the clues and get a certificate.

Facebook Page Reviews:

"We really enjoyed our visit, and will be back again soon. We were 2 adults, an 8 year old boy and a 6 year old girl. The kids enjoyed looking for the Lego people and doing the quiz. One room is the history of police in Glasgow, and the other was police from around the world; my son really liked that room."

"My son thoroughly enjoyed his visit to the police museum, and also enjoyed doing the quiz, well worth a visit."

"It was good and interesting took my three kids they had a great time. My twelve year old loved doing the quiz and my 6 year old loved trying to find all the lego men."

There's also a International Police Exhibition which illustrates the spread of policing throughout the world.

Where: First Floor, 30 Bell St, Glasgow G1 1LG

Price: Entry is FREE and if you enjoy your visit, donations are most welcome.
