DescriptionAs you step through the front door of the Jack the Ripper Museum you’ll take a step back in time to the London murders of 1888 and be immersed in the dark world of Jack the Ripper and his victims. Explore Mitre Square, and see a realistic and terrifying waxwork recreation of P. C. Watkins discovering the body of Catherine Eddowes. Once you have seen the murder, meet the murderer by visiting Jack the Ripper's sitting room, complete with medical instruments, books, maps, letters, and a fascinating collection of weird and wonderful Victorian Ripper memorabilia. Pride of place goes to prime suspect Walter Sickert’s original drawing of the body of a woman on a metal bed, appropriately signed in red ink. Whitechapel Police Station was the epicenter of the Ripper investigation. In the museum's recreation of the Police Station, you’ll see all the evidence presented on the crime scene boards. Inspect the From Hell and Dear Boss letters, as well as original newspapers and police artifacts. See the whistle that P. C. Watkins blew to call for help when he found the body in Mitre Square, together with his notebook, handcuffs, and truncheon which are on display to the public for the first time. These are the most significant Ripper-related items outside Scotland Yard’s private Crime Museum. In the attic of the museum, you'll see a recreation of Mary Jane Kelly’s bedroom, the scene of the Ripper’s most horrific murder. Experience how his victims lived and hear the life stories of the women he murdered. This poignant and moving room displays domestic photographs of the women and their families, boots, bonnets, a metal-framed bed with a straw mattress, and the meager possessions of poor Victorian East End women. Finally, if you dare, enter the morgue, where you can study the actual autopsy photos and read the reports of the horrific mutilation and murder of the 9 women that fell victim to the Ripper's knife.
