About

Meet amazing, costumed characters from Nottingham's history in our Grade II* listed, Shire Hall. Explore the Victorian Courtroom, Georgian gaol, and ancient cells - all spread over five fascinating floors.

Explore the National Justice Museum's full range of exhibitions, meet characters from history and take part in their wide range of fun, interactive activities available. Characters, activities, exhibitions, and courtroom performances will change throughout the year so there is always something new to discover.

A visit to the National Justice Museum tends to stay with people long after they’ve left. From experiencing ancient dungeons to engaging with contemporary exhibitions and events, law and justice are brought to life in exciting and relevant new ways.

They also have free exhibitions throughout the year, which do not require a museum admission ticket.
