Tayside Police Museum is closed until further notice. Please see the website for updates.

The Tayside Police Museum charts the history of policing in Dundee City, Perth & Kinross, and Angus. There are displays of artefacts, documents, and photographs, covering the period from the early 1800s through to the 1980s.

The displays within the Tayside Police Museum include sections on uniform, equipment, communication, offensive weapons, the Police Pipe Band, Special Constables, and so much more. There is also an exhibit referencing the last person to be hanged in Dundee, William Henry Bury, who went to the gallows in 1889 for the murder of his wife, and when confessing to his crime, claimed to be Jack The Ripper. The museum is run by volunteers, and entrance is free. There are toilet facilities, including access for visitors who are disabled. Children and families are welcome to visit. Groups, including school groups, are also very welcome but must pre-book.
