The Crime Museum UncoveredFor six months only, visitors to the Museum of London can gain unprecedented access to highlights from the Metropolitan Police's Crime Museum collection, established in the mid-1870s as a teaching tool to educate officers. Previously only accessible to police professionals and invited guests, The Crime Museum Uncovered exhibition reveals objects and evidence from some of the UK's most notorious crimes, including the Acid Bath Murderer of 1949, the Great Train Robbery of 1963 and the Millennium Dome Diamond Heist of 2000. It will also examine some of the challenges faced in policing the capital, tackling themes from terrorism and espionage to counterfeiting and narcotics. An accompanying programme of talks and events will enable you to play cop, bringing you closer to these fascinating real-life case files.
