Welcome to The Yorkshire Law & Order Museums. Our three sites within the centre of the city of Ripon, tell the unique story of the Liberty Courthouse, Prison and Victorian Workhouse.
All ages, all abilities, all welcome! If you are interested in doing some volunteering check out our current Volunteer Opportunities!
“We will use the unique trio of the Workhouse, Prison & Police and Courthouse Museums, collections and the stories they tell to help people explore big issues such as fairness, equality, justice and welfare. Through excellent engagement, programming and outreach together we will inspire people to become compassionate and active citizens, shaping society for the better. We will work for greater participation in our heritage which will enrich lives and improve wellbeing. Volunteering is integral to our organization; at our core we work as one team. We will make a positive impact on Ripon and the region’s cultural and economic capital”.
Ripon Museum Trust is an organisation of dedicated, enthusiastic and skilled individuals who look after three unique heritage buildings, their collections and visitors with a team of over 150 volunteers.
