Three Great Museums, One Great Day Out!
Our three museums follow a common theme of law and order and are based in the original workhouse, prison and courthouse buildings. These are all within walking distance around Ripon’s city centre.
The Courthouse remains virtually unchanged since it was built in 1830 and you can stand in the dock to hear your fate or sit at the magistrates’ bench to deliver the verdict. Our displays tell the story of the courthouse and the people who have passed through it.
Uncover hidden histories at Ripon’s award winning museums.
Open 7 days a week until 1st December 2019.
