Greater Manchester Police Museum & Archives

The Museum was founded in 1981. Funded by Greater Manchester Police, it not only collects and preserves archive material and objects relating to the history of policing in the Greater Manchester area, but acts as an important resource for community engagement, where visitors can talk to staff and volunteers about policing. GMP Museum holds primary and secondary source information about the history and development Greater Manchester policing. Our archive holdings are a mix of records – both official and personal.

If you would like to book a private tour for between 5- 25 people we offer these on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Tours last between one and a half to two hours and are suitable for anyone aged over 6, they are currently free of charge but all donations are gratefully received. Groups who regularly visit us include: Schools, Colleges, Universities, ESOL and interest groups. Please call or email us for more information.
