Had friends visiting from Canada and took them here as it's on our doorstep. Have to admit as nottingham isn't a tourist hub I expected it to be the weakest of the attractions we'd planned for them on their trips to Nottm, Bath, Oxford and London... But it turned out to be one of the best! The tour guides are... More

This is really incredible and right on my doorstep! I would recommend getting the double ticket to this and the caves as they are both excellent. You are led by actors and actresses and there are no volunteers involved, so the people who don't like taking part won't have to. You must visit this if you're journey takes you to... More

We enjoyed the visit but needed a guide a bit boring without one. We would go again, but we would make sure we have a guide

It was a fun little trip but I think they have a lot to learn from other similar attractions (ie Warwick Dungeons and similar). Could have been better but still worth a visit.

For anyone who is interested in crime and punishment and the history of it all this is the place to go. Friendly staff are available to answer any questions and the tour is just brilliant!

We had a great trip to the Galleries of Justice today. We have lived in the area for 10 years and I can't believe we hadn't visited this attraction before. My husband did gift aid and that gave us a free pass for repeat visits in the following year. So very much well worth the money.Good value for money for... More

Went here recently and was very impressed with the standard of this museum. Taught me a lot about the British justice system I didn't know. The court rooms had been preserved for a long time and were therefore extremely informative. In addition, the dungeons and prison cells had been kept. Very happy with this museum and will be visiting again.
