This exhibition tells the story of policing, crime and punishment in the 19th century.

From the night watchmen of 1800 to the bobby on the beat in 1900, it was a century that saw a revolution in the detection and prosecution of criminal activity. It was also a period of growing public fascination with crime and the emergence of a new hero in the battle to protect the law abiding Victorian from the nefarious activities of the criminal classes; the detective.

Free entry to museum and exhibition gallery. Donations welcome to Hampshire Cultural Trust.
