The Met should open up its secret 150 year old Crime Museum collection to the public and turn it into a profitable attraction, according to a new report by the London Assembly Conservatives.
They believe that an initial three month exhibition in a pre-existing London museum could attract as many as 300,000 visitors and pay for an additional 54,900 front line police hours.
The hidden collection includes items such as letters from Jack The Ripper, evidence that led to the prosecution of the Great Train Robbers, nooses and death masks from capital punishment executions.
