About Us

About Us

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.

We are based at Nottingham’s historic Shire Hall and County Gaol where you can delve into the fascinating history of justice through time. You will meet historical characters, explore our immense collection, take part in a range of interactive games and activities, and discover how law and justice contribute to all of our lives.

Our sister attraction, the City of Caves, tells the stories of people that lived and worked in the UK’s biggest network of caves.

National Justice Museum Education

Our education programmes are delivered in Nottingham, London and the North West. We help students to gain a practical understanding of the law and justice system, so they are inspired by their rights and responsibilities, to play an active role in society.

The National Justice Museum is a registered charity (1030554).
