A special guided tour of the Museum - starts Monday 19 November

Welcome to the National Justice Museum!

You may already be aware that we’re in Nottingham’s historic Shire Hall, but have you ever wondered about our hidden secrets?

Our special new guided tour Tales of Truth and Legend gives VIP access to our secret spaces and little-known stories, including our links with the legend of Robin Hood.

You can

 – visit the dungeon where folklore suggests Robin was once held

 – find out about the historic events played out on our steps

 – uncover the origins of Nottingham’s most famous spelling mistake

hear about the real prison breaks from our Georgian gaol, and

discover quirky facts and stories about our Victorian courtrooms

And there’s much more.

Tours run every day at 10.30am and 3.30pm.

Regrettably, due to the historic nature of our building areas of this tour, including the dungeon, are inaccessible to wheelchair users.

Please note the Tales of Truth and Legend is part of the normal admission price.
