AOL Travel Editor’s Review

One of the best Manchester attractions may not be one of the most obvious. A visit to a police station might not mean much to you until you realize this old museum is perfect for playing a grown-up game of cops and robbers. There’s a huge collection of truncheons, handcuffs, uniforms, old police cars and other miscellanea, and you can walk in and out of the dusty cells, trying out the wooden beds and even the locks. There’s also a room full of old police archives for those who suspect their ancestors may have been up to no good in Manchester of old. Admission is free, but the museum is only open on Tuesdays (10:30AM to 3:30PM).
