Capital Punishment

Explore the history of capital punishment

In the emotive Capital Punishment Exhibition, visitors will find out about the kind of crimes that people were executed for and examine the story and key events that led to abolition of public executions in 1868 and of execution altogether in the 1990s. In addition, they will be able to look at various methods of execution, learn about key execution cases and key executioners from the late 19th century to mid 20th century, and find out which areas across the world still carry out capital punishment today.
