The Bradford Police Museum is located in the historic City Hall and provides a unique insight into the history of policing, criminal justice, civic enforcement, and the development of crime and punishment in Bradford from the early 19th century.

Visits to the museum include guided tours of the original Victorian cells and courtroom, built in 1873, which formed part of the original police station. Visitors can stand in the police cell that the famous escapologist Harry Houdini escaped from, and then climb up the dock steps to the beautifully preserved Victorian court room which has been featured in several TV and film productions including Coronation Street.
