Take a walk into Manchester’s past with the official application for the Greater Manchester Police Museum.

Our audio guide will help enrich your visiting experience to the Museum, a historic building in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

This app features:
• Audio guides to accompany your visit to the key galleries in the museum
• Historic photographs of policing from the first bobbies on the beat
• A guide to photo opportunities – take your picture behind the original riot gates, in the dock or with police uniform through the ages and share it on social media through the app.
• Information about how to find out about your ancestors with our Archive Service

There are approximately 5,000 items in our collection, dating from the early 1800s to the present day, detailing a social history of Manchester as well as the police. There are Victorian cells, the original charge office and a reconstructed courtroom from the 1890s.

Come and visit a slice of Manchester history.
