Thames Valley Police has a small museum at the White House, at the Thames Valley Police training centre in Sulhamstead.

It includes displays on the history of Thames Valley Police and the five police forces that merged to form it: Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxford City, Oxfordshire and Reading Borough.

The museum's collections include items from the Great Train Robbery of 1963, uniforms, equipment, medals, scenes of crime evidence, and Amelia Dyer.

Visits to the museum are by appointment only, with a maximum group size of six. The museum is currently only open on Wednesdays. To make a booking please email [email protected]

A new small local museum has opened in Milton Keynes in partnership with MK Heritage. It is open by appointment only for groups of up to five. To make a booking or to find out more please email [email protected]
