Scotland Yard's 'Black Museum'

Scotland Yard’s unofficially named "Black Museum" has items from some of the most gruesome and infamous crimes of London. The displays were created for educational purposes and only police officers have been granted access, until possibly now. Boris Johnson is backing a plan for a "Blue Light Museum" to celebrate the capital’s emergency services.

I know there's an argument of it being disrespectful to the victims. Yet a lot of these crimes and killers are so much apart of our poplar culture now, that I would be fascinated to visit the museum. It's macabre, but it's a side of people that we will never be exposed to otherwise. Well I hope not.
