Family activities

Family Trail

Our family trials invite 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.

We offer trails suitable for different ages, Under 5’s, 5-7 years, and 7 – 11 years. All trails can also be used by adults to help engage younger visitors with the objects and stories on display.


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

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