This Museum Immerses You in the World of London’s Most Notorious Criminals

While a walking tour can invite you to follow in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper, there’s only one way to come face to face with one of the 19th-century killer’s victims. A Virtual Reality experience that allows visitors to view a holographic representation of Catherine Eddowes’ final hours is just one of the unique exhibits at the City of London Police Museum.

The museum, set to open to the public on Nov. 7, showcases a number of artifacts that run the gamut from before the City of London Police’s official 1839 founding up to the present day. The other exhibits include a test where visitors can find out if they have the ultra-rare abilities of a “super recognizer,” bombs made by suffragettes, and a number of confiscated weapons that range from the traditional to the improvised (rock in a sock, anyone?).
