The Crime Museum Uncovered


Counterfeiting and forgery implements from the Crime Museum

The Crime Museum was established by the Metropolitan Police in 1875, with items collected from crimes kept as a means of instructing police officers how to solve crimes.  The museum has never been open to the public, but for the first time some of the artefacts will be on display at the Museum of London.  Eyes peeled for items from Dr Crippen to the Krays, the Great Train Robbery to the Millennium Dome diamond heist.
