Greater Manchester Police Museum has received recognition for its superior visitor experience from the country’s national tourist board.
VisitEngland has given the museum a ‘Hidden Gem’ accolade for going the extra mile to give visitors an enjoyable and memorable experience.
It is one of fifty seven attractions from across the country that have been recognised and joins the Robinsons Brewery Visitor Centre in Stockport in the local accolades.
The museum and archives is based in a former Victorian police station on Newton Street in the Northern Quarter area of Manchester city centre.
Museum Curator Duncan Broady said: “We are thrilled with this recognition and hope it tempts more visitors to come and experience the history of the police force over the years.
“The museum is supported by a team of staff and volunteers who work passionately to educate and entertain each visitor who enters our doors.”
