Where can I find the Glasgow Police Museum?

The museum is located in the Merchant City in Glasgow city centre, which is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from Queen Street station.

Since this museum is interlinked with the Glasgow Police Heritage Society, you can rest assured you are in the hands of extremely knowledgeable individuals who are highly passionate about our Police Force. This society is made up of mostly retired Strathclyde Police officers and Glasgow City Police officers prior to the amalgamations of the Scottish Police Force. Since the museum opened in 2002, it has welcomed a massive 100,000 visitors from various parts of the world. Although the museum is free, it relies on the generosity of its visitors; so donations are highly welcome.
