Fantastic day out, visited the Nottingham Caves and the Galleries of Justice. Shouldn't really say to much as it would spoil it. But be aware of Matron in the exercise yard.

Wait for the small 'theatre play' for your tour throughout the museum. It's fun and offer lots of history information.

It was good to pass an hour or two but doubt you could do longer, the actors where interactive but we went on a very quiet day so i feel it could be more enjoyable maybe with a few more on the tour

The interactive court session and the identity they give you really brings the experience to life. Its still hard to imagine anyone surviving such a prison but at the end of the tour you see that not only did some survive but went on to make successes of themselves following deportation.

Visited here 12 years ago and was really looking forward to seeing improvements. How disappointed we were it was not as we remembered and was much less informative! We went on the tour into the court room where last time there was a mock trial. Not this time just the sherrif talking very quietly and quickly! Dummy's are totally unrealistic all in all poor value for money! Don't bother!
