Museum

At the Ripon Prison & Police Museum, visitors can sit in a prison cell, hear the door slam shut and imagine the harsh conditions of Victorian prison regimes.

Try on prison and police uniforms, imagine the horror of being set in the pillory, strapped in a restraint chair or hung in chains.

You can experience hard labour by turning the crank, carrying out shot drill or climbing the treadmill.

Our displays and collection, illustrate the history of Policing in Yorkshire.

Three Great Museums, One Great Day Out!

The three museums of Ripon Prison & Police Museum follow a common theme of law and order and are based in the original workhouse, prison and courthouse buildings.

These are all within walking distance around Ripon’s city centre.
