Tetbury Police Museum is situated in the original historic Victorian Police Station, Gaol and Magistrates Court. This significant building was one of 16 Police Stations and Magistrates Courts built in Gloucestershire between 1858 and 1909.

The Museum is home to a unique and fascinating collection of stories, photographs, objects and memorabilia. The collection brings alive the story of a community over the last 200 years through the eyes of a small group of dedicated people who were in charge of maintaining law and order in the town and surrounding countryside.
