The Galleries of Justice is a rare gem. I wish I could pick it up and move it so that more people will visit because it is incredibly difficult to find an interesting museum.
As you walk through the door you can feel the enthusiasm of the staff; they take the time to make sure that each customer is valued from the moment they arrive, and its engaging activities make this a unique and unforgettable experience. It is a little gruesome in places so it may not be perfect for children of the more sensitive nature, although there are some nicer exhibits and places to play all over the building for all age groups so don't let this put you off.
I did look for something negative in an attempt to give a balanced view but there was nothing apart from the fact that it was a bit chilly in parts, but it's an old building and the coffee in the cafe is great so will warm you up in no time.
We had a great time and we will be going back. If you're looking for an exciting way to spend your afternoon then this is the place.
