The police museum was set up in the 1980’s to explain and illustrate Northern Ireland’s unique and often contentious policing history. Our collection includes police uniforms, equipment, medals and archives from the early 1800’s to the present day and also weapons used against the police over the years. The police museum is located in a former sergeant’s married quarters at Police Headquarters, Brooklyn. Displays are located on ground level and are fully accessible for all. The museum is open to the public from 10am until 4:30pm from Monday to Friday, although we recommend that you pre-arrange your visit to avoid disappointment. We welcome groups of up to 20 and can also arrange evening visits. If you are unable to visit the museum, our staff are happy to give talks and presentations to outside groups or take museum displays out to events. The museum has displays of police uniforms and equipment, medals and archives as well as displays of terrorist weapons used against police over the years. To add a personal touch, visitors are personally shown round by the Curator, which takes about 40 minutes. We also have a reference library and archive which allows visitors to find information on ancestors who served in the Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) and early Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC). Academic researchers are welcome to use the musem’s archive of police records from the 1840’s onwards.
