  • Tucked away in Merchant City is this nondescript museum. It's a very compact museum consisting of two rooms. The first and bigger room is all about the history of the police force in Glasgow. There's a lot of reading by the way. Lots of boards with information and little stories over the centuries of the force's existence. For me the best part of this room was the plaque and exhibits commemorating members of the police force who serve in the first or second world war. The second, much smaller room exhibits uniforms from police forces from around the world, plus badges for regional polices forces from around Scotland. Which was really enjoyable as the exhibit were if such high quality. This museum is well hidden away from the main attractions in the city and not an obvious attraction for the average tourist. However, it's definitely worth seeking out.
  • Very good! Warmly greeted by staff members who gave us a brief description of the displays and how the museum came to be. Its a small museum but very interesting with a great collection of photography, uniforms and equipment used over the years. We were able to find historic links to our local force... again...thanks to the attentiveness of the museums staff.
