We tell the story of Policing in South Wales from the Celts right through to the present day and hold one of the largest collections of police memorabilia outside London.

Virtual tour includes the Edwardian charge room and our resident inmate Isaac Martin in his cell. See a glimpse of some of the fascinating objects on display in their original setting.

The Museum works closely with schools throughout South Wales, offering tours and activities related to the National Curriculum. These include the Victorian Police, using a real life example to illustrate life as a policeman in Merthyr in the 1860s, and the extended role of the police during World War 2.
