Visitor information

You will have seen the PM’s announcement that museums can begin opening from 4 July.

Sadly, with the current guidelines for reopening, and with the safety of our visitors and volunteers a priority, reopening on 4 July is not currently possible for the Bradford Police Museum and many other self-funded, independent museums.

We are still working hard towards reopening when we can, but please bear with us. We know many of you are looking forward to visiting us again and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

So, as soon as we are able to reopen, we will announce it on our web site. Please look out then for dates and opening times.

In the meantime, we would like to thank all of you for your support.


Large groups who have not booked a group tour and wish to visit during general opening are asked to contact the museum in advance.

There is no pushchair storage on site.

The last tour of the cells and court will start 40 minutes before the museum closes.

Due to the restrictive nature of the cells, there is a ratio of one adult for every four children on the cell and court tours.

Open hours

The museum closes for its winter break at the end of November each year, and reopens mid March the following year.

The museum then opens every Friday and Saturday throughout the year until the end of November.


There is wheelchair and pushchair access to the gallery and the cells. However due to the existence of steep steps the court room can not be accessed by wheelchairs or pushchairs.
