Justice and Police Museum


The Justice & Police Museum served as a policy station to a Court between 1856 to 1886. The museum has been restored to its 1890s character emphasising its themes of crime and punishment and law and order.

The Justice & Police Museum features a magistrates court, a recreated police charge room and remand cells. There is also a gallery of mug shots of Sydney's early criminals and a variety of weapons used during those early years.

For those who like the gruesome and the marcarbe, details on notorious crimes such as the Shark Arm Murder, the Pyjama Girl Case and the Graeme Thorne Kidnapping as well as original objects gathered from an assortment of legendary bushrangers, are on display.
