“Top Museum”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Very interesting and educational place to visit. Appeals to both kids and adults. Makes one appreciate the difficult job our police have and what a lot we own to them.

“Interesting”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

I last visited over 10 years ago. Interesting then but much improved now. Very welcoming staff. Apparently they are working on continuous improvement.
Well worth the visit.

“Interesting ; Good for kids.”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Lots on interesting facts/memoribillia ; Very good for children and had a sort of 'who-dunnit" quiz for them to work out as they made their way around.
