Follow the story of poverty, crime and punishment through the three Ripon Museums.

The Liberty Courthouse remains virtually unchanged since it was built in 1830. Explore the Jury Room with its ceremonial pair of halberds and library of 18th and 19th century manuals, and the Retiring Room which contains a gallery of portraits of many past magistrates.

The sorry tales of defendants and their sentences – often transportation to Australia – are recounted here in the museum’s three rooms.
