Justice and Police Museum | History

The Justice & Police Museum was originally the Water Police Court (1856), Water Police Station (1858) and Police Court (1886).

Restored to their 1890s character, the buildings heavy blocks of sandstone, spiked gates, winding steps and corridor of cells reinforce the Museums themes of crime and punishment and law and order.

The Justice and Police Museum features a magistrates court, a recreated police charge room and remand cells, a gallery of mug shots of Sydneys early criminals and an array of spine chilling weapons.

It also showcases weird and wonderful relics from notorious crimes such as the Pyjama Girl Case and the Graeme Thorne Kidnapping, as well as many original objects associated with such legendary bushrangers as Frank Gardiner, Ben Hall and Captain Moonlight.

Guided tours are available on request. For groups, please contact the property to book a tour. The Museum is open to the general public on weekends, except during school holidays when it opens everyday.

Make sure that you get a plan of the museum when you arrive, as the building is full of nooks and crannies housing fascinating displays and exhibits.
