Have you ever wondered what punishment was like in Victorian times? Discover the history of policing in Yorkshire and explore the harsh and cruel punishments handed out to the petty criminal in a prison cell and hear the door slam, turn the crank, and have your fingerprints taken.  Visitors can step into a Victorian Prison cell – just make sure you can get out!

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

The Prison & Police Museum is housed in the former Ripon Liberty Prison, which became Ripon Police Station.
