National Justice Museum launch postponed to later in 2017


Originally planned for February 2017, the launch of the National Justice Museum will now take place later in 2017. The change of timing is due to a delay in the capital works.

The project, which is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, will see Nottingham’s Galleries of Justice Museum and their education provider, the National Centre for Citizenship and Law, come together as the National Justice Museum. Utilising the UK’s largest collection relating to law, justice, crime and punishment, the National Justice Museum will include an exciting range of new exhibition areas and visitors will also be able to enjoy a range of brand new fun and interactive activities suitable for all the family. National Justice Museum Education will also provide public legal education programmes in Nottingham, London and the North West.

Tim Desmond, Chief Executive for the museum said: “Whilst we have experienced a temporary delay in our capital works, we are looking forward to launching the National Justice Museum later in 2017 across all our legal and heritage sites in Nottingham, London and the North West.

“Meanwhile it is business as usual and our doors are open at the Galleries of Justice Museum so visitors can still come and be inspired to learn about their rights and responsibilities through our entertaining exhibitions and activities.”

The Galleries of Justice Museum will now remain open throughout January 2017 and will offer their full range of tours, exhibitions and education activities. Further updates about the project will be communicated in 2017.

The Galleries of Justice Museum is based at Nottingham’s old courthouse and gaol. Their impressive collection consists of over 40 000 objects and archives, making it the UK’s largest collection relating to crime and punishment. It is an independent museum and a registered charity (number 1030554). The organisation helps people to gain a practical understanding of the law and justice system and is a leader in public legal education, delivering learning activities in Nottingham as well as at the Royal Courts of Justice in London and at working courtrooms in the North West.
