The True CRIME Museum

About

The True CRIME Museum reopens on 4 July. Please check ahead before visiting - you can see their Covid visitor information page here.

__

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.

    Not sure how visitors can get around this museum in 30 minutes, it took us about one and three quarter hours. So much information and some amazing artefacts. Granted it is a bit on the small size... Read full review
