It was with much regret that we can confirm that Tayside Police Museum Kirriemuir will not be open to visitors for the remainder of 2021. There are several reasons for this and it is not just as a consequence of the pandemic.
Our hope is to open the museum at the Easter Weekend in 2022, but we will have to recruit a few more volunteers in order to match the hours of opening that we achieved from 2016 onwards. No specialist knowledge or training is needed, neither is it a requirement that you are a retired police officer, and it need not be a significant time commitment. Just a few hours a month from April through to September. So if you are in a position to help us open again, just message the museum page.
Updates will be posted here.
The Tayside Police Museum, located in the same building as the existing Police Station in Reform Street, Kirriemuir, charts the history of policing in the city of Dundee, and the counties of Perth & Kinross and Angus, from the early 1800s through to the present day.
The museum is located entirely on the ground floor, and comprises of 6 rooms in which visitors will be able to view permanent displays of Uniform, Batons, Handcuffs, Awards & Medals, Cameras, Weaponry, and so much more.
