The Museum of Policing in Cheshire is housed in a Victorian police station which remains operational today, with some exhibits displayed in the original cell block. The extensive collection includes objects, photographs and documents relating to policing in the county, from handcuffs to forged bank notes, truncheons to bicycles.
Displays include a huge amount of police equipment, dating from Victorian times to the present day, including modern uniform and equipment to try on for size. Young visitors can switch on the blue lights and twin tone horns in a real police car.
- The museum contains the cell door from the condemned cell at Knutsford Prison, with details of the unfortunates executed there between 1880 and 1912.
- Cheshire officers were involved in the identification of Lindow Man, the partial remains of an Iron Age man found in a peat bog at Lindow Moss, near Wilmslow. The remains were initially thought to be related to an ongoing murder investigation.
