Ripon Museums are closed from 31 December, in line with Government guidance.

Thanks to all our volunteers and staff, who have worked tirelessly to make our museums safe and great places to visit. Our utmost priority during these unprecedented times is ensuring the safety of all and we will follow all government advice to enable us to safely reopen. Please follow government guidelines on travelling within or between tiers when planning your visit.

See you soon! Stay safe everyone.

Please support the museum by making a donation. Our buildings and collections are of national importance and we tell the story of how society has dealt with welfare for the poor, homelessness, justice and how the law has developed over the last 300 years.  Ripon Museum Trust is a registered charity set up to care for and make accessible this social justice heritage and develop it for future generations to learn from.  Donations and bequests of any size are welcomed – any gift makes a difference.
