Explore the darker side of Ripon’s history at Ripon’s Museums Museum this half term. The Prison & Police Museum, Workhouse and Courthouse Museums all remember the harrowing stories of those who have passed through their doors...
Experience the Workhouse by candlelight on Halloween and meet some of its ghostly inmates, finishing with a spooky story around the fire.
But it’s not all gloom! The museums also celebrate light at half term - experience the thrill of the Victorian Magic Lantern Show with its clever changing pictures and beautiful patterns. Children can also make moving shadow puppets and perform their own live show.
