This museum is a little gem, particularly good for kids but not too young as some of the exhibits are quite gory! Housed in a sandstone building that had been the Water Police Court (1856), the Water Police Station (1858) and finally the Police Court (1885) it provides a great opportunity to learn about Sydney's criminal past. It features a magistrate's court, charge room, remand cell, and a selection of mind-bogglingly nasty weapons like some spiked metal balls and chains, daggers, clubs and knuckledusters. Group bookings are available for the visits. Please check the website for visiting hours.
