The National Justice Museum has reopened following a revamp and a new name to suit.


The former courthouse and gaol, which houses the UK’s largest collection of more than 40,000 law, justice, crime, and punishment artefacts, now includes new areas to display a wider selection of archive items, an increased number of interactive displays and a new crime gallery featuring free exhibitions.

Previously known as the Galleries of Justice, the Museum has a broader educational remit than that of just a visitor attraction. It supports new education programmes held at National Justice Museum Education facilities situated at the iconic Royal Courts of Justice in London and at legal and heritage sites across the North West. Reaching over 20,000 children and young people across the country, the National Justice Museum will take on a much more powerful role; encouraging on-going learning and the recognition of the value of social justice, equality, and the law.
