A couple of the more notorious crimes - murders - are also on display.
After the Police Museum, we headed over to the Scotland Street School Museum, which provides a wonderful history of education.
Scotland Street School
Not only were there separate entrances for boys, girls and infants, but the floors were separated out according to age with the infants (4 & 5 year olds) on the main floor, primary students on the middle floor and senior students on the third floor.
This museum gives a wonderful history of education. The museum is in a former school, known as the Scotland Street School (being located on Scotland Street). Many of the children were from surrounding tenements. The building was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
The former classrooms are set up to depict different time periods in school history.
