CI Exclusive - Crime Museum Uncovered Special Offer
Exlusive CI viewer offer - get 15% off tickets to The Crime Museum Uncovered - Open until 10 April 2016
For the first time ever, never-before-seen objects from the Metropolitan Police’s Crime Museum will go on public display in a major new exhibition at the Museum of London.
Created with the support of the Metropolitan Police Service and the Mayor’s Office for Policing And Crime (MOPAC), the exhibition reveals the secrets of the Crime Museum, which has previously only been accessible to police professionals and invited guests since its establishment in the 1870s.
Unlocking real-life case files you’ll be taken on an uneasy journey through some of the capital’s most notorious crimes including the 1910 case of Dr Crippen, the Acid Bath Murderer of 1949, the Great Train Robbery of 1963 and the Millennium Dome Diamond Heist of 2000.
The Crime Museum Uncovered uses original objects from this extraordinary collection to consider the changing nature of crime and advances in detection over the last 140 years, as well as some of the challenges faced in policing the capital, tackling themes from terrorism and espionage to counterfeiting and narcotics.
Focusing on real people – victims, perpetrators and police officers – the exhibition explores the human stories behind these crimes and confronts how, as a society, we respond when normality is shattered, lives are torn apart and we need to rebuild. It also forces us to question our own enduring fascination with this hidden collection and its stories.
