3. Essex Police Museum events

We aim to preserve the history of policing in Essex whilst making learning fun. The Essex Police Museum has lots of craft activities and events throughout the year for all ages. 

Kids Club

kids-club-title.jpgThe Essex Police Museum runs a Kids Club loyalty scheme. Each eligible activity you purchase earns you one stamp. Collect 4 and your 5th activity is free! All eligible activities will have the Kids Club logo on them so they are easy to spot. 

Anyone with unclaimed stickers from 2019/2020 can still use them. When you next visit the museum show a member of staff your booklet and they will transfer it over to the new format. 

(One loyalty card per child)
