We also have free exhibitions throughout the year, and booking is not required.

There is a large multi-storey car park in nearby Stoney Street, where we can offer all-day discounted parking. The Lace Market car park is also two less than five minutes walking distance from the museum. Other options can be found on Nottingham City Council website. For discounted parking, on arrival at reception simply ask for a car parking ticket to discount your parking rate when you exit the car park. A small pay and display car parking area with around 20 spaces is almost directly opposite the museum steps on High Pavement. Pay and display charges apply.

Coach parking for groups

Unfortunately, due to our location, we are unable to offer coach or mini bus parking at the National Justice Museum. Coaches are able to drop off and pick up students outside the museum but will need to find somewhere to park during the day. For information on where to park a coach in the city please visit the Nottingham City Council Website.

Mini bus parking

If you are travelling to the museum in a mini bus you will be able to drop off and pick up from directly outside the museum but there is nowhere to park. We recommend that mini buses be parked at the ‘Park Centre’ car park: Park Centre, Queens Road, Nottinghamshire, Nottingham NG2 3AS.

The car park is only a ten minute walk at leisure from the museum (NG1 1HN). To reserve spaces at this car park please call 0115 9866000.

Buses go to the Nottingham train station which is within walking distance of the museum. Nearby bus stops include Fletcher Gate and George Street.
