The National Justice Museum has also been shortlisted for the final round of the 2020/2021 School Travel Organisers Awards for ‘Best Museum Visit’. You can learn more about this here.

Due to the safety measures that have been put in place our gift shop, at the National Justice Museum in Nottingham, is currently closed during school visits.

As an alternative goody bags can be pre-ordered ready for collection on the day of your visit. Goody bags are £2.95 per person and each contain a National Justice Museum branded pen, pencil and eraser. All bags will be prepared at least 72 hours before your visit and handed to the teacher as a complete pack to avoid contact. Our booking form will ask if you would like to order goody bags or you can contact our bookings team for more information at education@nationaljusticemuseum.org.uk.
