Justice & Police Museum

Step into Sydney’s dark side. Crooks and cops, locals and drifters, the guilty and the innocent have all left their stories here. Originally a police station and courts, the museum draws you into a world of crime, policing and punishment, from bushrangers and razor gangs to the future of forensics. In a city that’s grown out from the harbour, the waterfront has always been a place of misadventure and misdemeanour.

A vast archive of crime scene photography and mug shots reveals more than a century of underworld Sydney. The buildings were constructed from Sydney sandstone quarried from Bennelong Point, where the Sydney Opera House stands.
