The Crime Museum Uncovered at the Museum of London



Delve into the murky world of murder, theft, gangs and violence with The Crime Museum Uncovered exhibition at the Museum of London.

For the first time ever, a number of fascinating items from the Metropolitan Police's Crime Museum are on display for the public to witness, having previously been reserved for police related professionals and specially invited guests only.

The collection was started by serving police officers back in 1875 and has gradually built up over the decades, with all sorts of evidence from famous cases being continually added. Some of the UK's most notorious crimes are represented in the collection, with objects and evidence relating to everything from the Great Train Robbery of 1963 and the Acid Bath Murderer of 1949, to the Millennium Dome Diamond Heist and numerous terrorism, narcotics and espionage cases.

Looking to illustrate the way in which crime and detection has advanced over 140 years, this darkly fascinating exhibition tells the human stories behind some truly grisly crimes.
