Tayside Police Museum 1

The volunteers at TPM are pleased to announce that we are going to open our door to visitors from 11am on Thursday 7th April. Initially this will be on a trial basis, as we have to pay due regard to the health and safety of both visitors and volunteers, so numbers allowed entry at any one time will be on a limited basis.
The length of any tour will be approximately 30 minutes, with only one family group (up to 6 in total) allowed entry at any one time. We will do our best to accomodate passer-by / drop in type visits, although potential visitors will have to bear with us until we all get used to these new procedures.
We intend to open every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 11am until 3pm each day, with a review at the end of each month. Initially there will be a requirement to wear masks, with the exception of children aged 12 or under.
Group visits can still be arranged in advance by emailing curator@taysidepolicemuseum.org.uk.
