Family and child friendly. Engaging and thought provoking. Small but very interesting. If you have time take the multi site ticket to 3 attractions.

I visited the courthouse museum as part of the Ripon museums tour. Definitely worth buying the combined ticket for £12 (adult) to see all three museums. The courthouse is the smallest but definitely worth a visit. You find out all about the fate of local...More
