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.

    £17 entry for two of us. This place is very small and the price does not reflect this. Although, that being said it had some interesting items inside. I would suggest an entry price of £5 maximum per... Read full review
