Exciting Changes at the Galleries of Justice Museum

On Thursday the 2 March we will only have audio tours running from 1.30pm. 

From 1st April 2017, following a £1million Heritage Lottery Fund supported project, we will become the National Justice Museum. Using the UK’s largest collection relating to law, justice, crime and punishment, the new National Justice Museum will include an exciting range of new exhibition areas showcasing even more of our collection. There will also be a range of fun, interactive activities on offer for the whole family to enjoy.

Please note: The Galleries of Justice Museum will close from 20th February 2017 as we embark on  a major capital works project. During this time, visitors will be able to experience a new tour of our original 1905 Police Station and tours of Nottingham’s historic Lace Market.
