True Crime Museum, Hastings

Thursday 22nd February 2018

KYTOS is pleased to announce our latest Biology trip:

The True Crime Museum along the coast of Hastings is a unique attraction for everyone fascinated by the dark world of crime. Set in 3,000 sq/ft of seafront caves, it is the largest collection of crime memorabilia in the UK. The museum presents a chilling insight into the world of serial killers, forensics, gangsters, prisoners & poisoners.

 

As part of the visit, you will spend time exploring the caves, discovering the stories behind the exhibits - you will get to see a genuine lethal injection deathbed, the actual acid containers used by John George Haigh to dissolve his victims and identify real celebrity police mug shots. We will then delve into the heart of Hastings town centre on a guided walk of intriguing cases and hidden crime scenes!

We will be leaving school at around 12.45pm and returning at approximately 6.45pm on the day. If you wish to attend, please provisionally sign up using the form on this site. Letters will then be sent home to parents/guardians of the first 30 students who apply. This must be signed and returned by the specified date, with the appropriate payment (approximate cost of £25)

Please check to make sure you can make this date before submitting your request.
