The True CRIME Museum

About

The True CRIME Museum is a SHOCKING new attraction for everyone fascinated by the dark world of crime. Set in 3,000 sq/ft of seafront caves, it is the largest collection of crime memorabilia in the UK and open daily from 10am – 5pm.

Suitable for all ages and with wheelchair access throughout, the museum presents a chilling but fascinating insight into the world of Serial Killers, Forensics, Gangsters, Prisoners, Poisoners and more!

See a GENUINE lethal injection deathbed, the ACTUAL acid containers used by John George Haigh to dissolve his victims. Guess the crimes of the celebrities from their police mug shots, then enter the Cinema Cave where infamous murderers describe their hideous deeds.

    This is an informative museum and we liked the opportunity to take photos with an 'accused' board. It will take at least an hour to go round. The exhibits are all well labelled and explained. Read full review

    Save your time and money. We were four people(two young adults and two a bit older), and spent 20 minutes here. Left very dissapointed! We agree with what other «terrible» reviewers have written. Read full review
