The Metropolitan Police’s Crime Museum based at New Scotland Yard is to go on public display for the first time.

The Museum of London exhibition, The Crime Museum Uncovered, will open on 9 October and run for six months. The Met’s grisly collection, created by serving police officers in 1875, was previously only accessible to police professionals and invited guests. The so-called Black Museum features objects and evidence from notorious crimes, including gallstones from the Acid Bath Murders, personal items from the Great Train Robbery and the 1856 death mask of executed criminal Robert Marley (pictured).
