Visiting As A Family

We are actively working towards the principles of the Kids In Museums Manifesto to help make the Museum a welcoming place for all families.

Family Trail

Our family trial invites all budding young detectives to pick up a case file and undercover the story of policing on Bow Street. Follow the clues, complete the puzzles and investigate why Bow Street Police Station is one of the most famous in the world.

Our trail can be completed independently by those aged 7 – 11 years, but can also be used by adults to help engage younger children with lots of the objects and stories on display.

Workshops and Activities

During the school holidays we often run special workshops or provide additional activites for families to enjoy. Once confirmed, further details and information about how join in with these events will appear on this page.


Details of all our facilities can be found on our Accessibility page.
