Educational Visits in Nottingham

Based at Nottingham’s historic courthouse and County Gaol, the National Justice Museum provides a creative learning experience for educational visits and school trips in Nottingham. Our vast museum provides an exciting insight into law, crime and justice. Students will get the opportunity to explore key museum spaces with a dedicated education guide. They will also come face to face with infamous historical characters.

We offer an extensive range of education workshops, which are directly linked to our museum exhibitions. Cross-curricular activities are available for all ages and abilities. Students will investigate a particular theme, linked to their area of study, which could include; crime and punishment through time, prison history, prison reform, transportation and capital punishment.

Museum workshops last for two hours and cost £9 per student. Our maximum capacity is 120 pupils if they are split into four groups.

You can choose one of the below museum packages. You can also combine a museum workshop with one of our Courtroom Workshops and enjoy a full day of hands-on activities for just £11 per student. A £75.00 deposit is required to secure a booking. Please note, minimum group sizes are 20 students. If you wish to bring fewer than 20 students we, in most cases, will still need to invoice for 20 to cover the costs of delivering the session.

In addition, we offer a range of educational activities at our sister venue, the City of Caves

“The resources and programmes are underpinned by a clear understanding of how to motivate and interest children with real life and hands on experiences.  The artefacts and the clear, relevant and enthusiastic explanations and support from the staff have ensured I always leave with motivated and engaged children keen to continue their learning back at school.” Deputy Headteacher,  Robert Mellors Primary and Nursery School
