This February Half-Term, grab your magnifying glass and join us at the Heritage Centre at Bridgend Headquarters for a week of mystery and intrigue as you become a Detective for a day!
From facial recognition to fingerprinting - discover some of the science used to help keep South Wales safe through the ages, and find out if you’ve got what it takes to become a real-life super-sleuth.
With a Victorian cell to lock up any guilty guests, and a museum-wide detective trail, the Heritage Centre has plenty to keep your budding investigators entertained over half term.
