Overview

The police force in Northern Ireland has usually been despised and revered in equal measure. The RUC Museum charts the eventful history of policing Northern Ireland, starting from the Irish Constabulary's formation in 1822 (before the partition of Ireland), and continuing through to the present day Royal Ulster Constabulary, and the proposals for a Northern Ireland Police. You can conduct a genealogical search for constabulary members between 1822 to1922. Given the current climate, and in the wake of the Patten Report on policing, a visit to this museum is a must for those interested in contemporary Northern Ireland, no matter what political perspective they come from. No more than 10 people per group will be admitted.
