Greater Manchester Police Museum and the Fusilier Museum  NEW      Wednesday 4h September

 

The Greater Manchester Police Museum delves into the darker side of the city’s history, bringing the former Newton Street police headquarters to life in all its severity, its heavy riot gates once kept out braying mobs.  Today, a museum and archive is located in the building, which closed in the 1970’s yet still retains the décor and aura of a Victorian-Era prison.  The museum contains a number of collections relating to local policing through the ages – from helmets, uniforms and truncheons to police transport.  Amongst the most interesting are items relating to the notorious 25 day Strangeways riot of 1990, which took place just a mile down the road.  They include a gruesome cabinet of improvised weapons used in the riot.  Wannabe crime-solvers will enjoy testing their skills of deduction in a section dedicated to the ingenuity of those on both sides of the bars and stories of some of the regions more gruesome murders are told alongside displays of the actual murder weapons used.  There is a mock magistrate court which puts visitors in the dock and walk through cells and 1879 charge room. 

 

The Fusilier Museum is home to the collections of the XX Lancashire Fusiliers and the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.  Together they record over 300 years of history and heritage of the people who served in the regiments.
