“Good if you're looking for something to do!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

I thought the Galleries of Justice gave a good insight in how Nottingham prison’s were run. The Actor Led part’s definitely made the experience more enjoyable (as I tend to get bored reading bits of information all the time).

You can purchase a joint ticket for there and the City of Caves (situated in the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre) for £12 per adult, great for a rainy day!

“great history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

As an adult from Nottingham I found this place completly facinating,from the history,building and the events that happened there.You get an insight into Victorian Nottingham and events,hangings and Law,the prison cells and how prisoners were treated.The only downer was it suited Adults more than children and they got a little bored at times.Well worth the money though.

“Great attraction, very informative.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012 via mobile

We spent a good few hours around here, the actors telling the stories are great.

Exhibitions are well done.

Overall, well worth the visit, especially if you get a combined ticket with the caves.

“Great legal experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

A good half day out - learn about the law and courts, get to play roles in court, see how justice works. Excellent half day out for families.
