Coventry Police Museum

Explore Coventry’s policing history

The Coventry Police Museum first opened in 1957, at Little Park Street, now Coventry Central Police Station.

The museum has been closed since 2020, but we have a pop up museum open as part of Coventry’s UK City of Culture celebrations. It’s located in Hertford Street in the City Centre.

We’re open on Fridays and Saturdays between 10am to 3pm. We’re also open on Thursdays during the school holidays. It’s free to enter and you can come and see:

  • historic artefacts and confiscated property
  • the history of policing in the area
  • lots of items to buy from our shop

It’s staffed by a team of volunteers, many of them are retired Coventry police officers. They’re happy to answer any questions and tell you stories from their service.

We look forward to seeing you there.
