Greater Manchester Police Museum: Housed in a former police station which was built in 1879 and in use until 1979, this museum tells the story of policing in Manchester. The building bulges with memorabilia such as old uniforms, weapons and equipment.

Tales of criminal antics and police derring-do enliven the exhibitions. The stars of the show are the grim cells, which could house up to 12 members of the underworld.

This museum is worth a visit because of its sheer oddness and its very knowledgeable and friendly staff. If you want the ultimate in unusual souvenirs you can use the resources to track whether your ancestors were criminals in the city.
