Once at the Justice and Police Museum, you will be able to examine the history of law, crime and policing in New South Wales. You may also explore the atmospheric interior of the building, stand before the Duty Sergeant’s desk in the Charge Room and view the shocking collection of weapons and mug-shots of criminal offenders.
The museum also houses a vast film archive which documents, police investigations, over nine thousand objects and other important records. Here, you will find a wealth of information on policing in New South Wales, the social history of law and crime. The museum also offers a comprehensive school education program, as well as other lively programs designed to provide the public with information. It's great fun exploring the corridors of the Museum with names deeply carved into the sandstone walls, as well as meticulous handwriting preserved in the numerous forms and documents the former court building contains.
Check out the huge assortment of weapons dating back as far as 1910 in the Crime Museum. Walk down the foreboding Corridor of Cells and imagine what it was like for the criminals in past days.
