For the first time ever, objects from the Metropolitan Police’s Crime Museum go on public display in this major new exhibition at the Museum of London. Since its establishment in the 1870s, the Crime Museum has only been open to police professionals and invited guests – until now.
Using original evidence from this extraordinary collection, real life case files are unlocked to take you on an uneasy journey through some of the UK’s most notorious and significant crimes.
The Crime Museum Uncovered considers how specific cases have led to developments in policing and changes to the law over the last 140 years. The exhibition explores the impact of crime, personalising what is so often depersonalised, forcing us to question our fascination with these stories.
We’re giving one reader and a guest the chance to win a pair of tickets to The Crime Museum Uncovered plus an overnight stay with breakfast at the Novotel London Paddington Hotel, a contemporary hotel and the perfect base for exploring the capital. You can relax in the sauna or by the pool and then unwind in our Elements Restaurant and Bar to enjoy a relaxing meal in a friendly atmosphere at Novotel.
