"Bringing our policing stories to life to engage, educate and inspire"

Thanks to the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are currently refurbishing our new home at the Steelhouse Lane Lock-up and hope to re-open this venue around April 2022.

Please follow us on Facebook (The Lock-up), Twitter (@WMPHistory) and Instagram (Steelhouse_Lockup) for more info and the latest images.

We have opened a new pop-up museum on Hertford Street in Coventry City Centre for City of Culture year which is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm. No booking is required.

Our online shop is still available and please feel free to send us an e-mail with any other queries via:
