Ripon Museum Trust has three museums with the common theme of Law and Order. At the Workhouse Museum you can dress as a Victorian pauper and play in the old school room. At the Prison and Police museum you can sit on the police motorbike and try Victorian hard labour!
At the Courthouse museum you can sit at the judges bench and send your family to jail!
