Museums and Art Galleries: City Centre (Lace Market)
National Justice Museum
High Pavement, Nottingham. NG1 1HN • (0115) 952 0555
Based at Nottingham’s old courthouse and gaol, the Old Shire Hall, sinister and grim stories of Nottingham’s own outlaws are brought to life. To capture and explain this gruesome history they use actors, audio guides, guide sheets, lighting, sounds, set dressing and exhibitions.
There is also a Robin Hood exhibition on site where you can learn all about Nottingham’s most famous outlaw.
In the free exhibition spaces, explore themes of modern social justice, inspired by artefacts from the collection. These spaces do not need a Museum admission ticket to enter - the friendly team on reception can point the way.
The National Justice Museum was founded in 1993 as the Galleries of Justice Museum by the Lace Market Heritage Trust but the history of the site itself goes way back in time.
