A new Crime Museum for the Metropolitan Police

AHMM has completed work on a new Crime Museum for the Metropolitan Police Service. The new museum, located in the basement of New Scotland Yard, will display selected items from the Met’s evidence archive, which was established in the mid-1870s as a teaching tool for its officers in training and, while not open to the public, remains a vital resource for police officers and researchers today. Dark painted walls, soffits and flooring provide a dramatic setting for a contrasting ‘timeline’ of specially-lit white display cabinets and plinths containing the exhibits and artefacts, many of which featured in infamous cases over the Met’s history.
