Established in 1874 as a laboratory for studying burglary-case evidence, Scotland Yard’s Black Museum is Britain’s official attic of evil, packed with a surfeit of crime-scene detritus. Scotland Yard’s Chamber of Crime offers an unsual tour of the facility — still closed to the public — while curator Bill Waddell comments on artifacts from a dozen celebrated cases, while the crimes themselves are described and reenacted. Among the best known to film fans: The 1953 Christie serial killing case (subject of Richard Fleischer’s 1971 Ten Rillington Place). B+
