About

Open seven days a week from 10am

"At the National Justice Museum we inspire people of all ages to become active citizens. We do this through fun and engaging activities, exhibitions and educational programmes relating to law and justice". 

Based in Nottingham’s historic Lace Market, the National Justice Museum is housed in Nottinghamshire’s Grade 2 listed old Shire Hall and County Gaol. The Museum uses original Courtrooms, dungeons and prison cells, along with a number of more contemporary galleries to exhibit collections relating to justice, the law, crime and punishment in a fun and interactive way. When visiting the museum you may also meet a variety of colourful historical characters with different stories of justice to tell.
