Ripon Museum Trust

Ripon Museum's vision is to use its heritage assests to inspire people to seek a fairer society. Through excellent engagement, programming and outreach it aims to inspire people to become compassionate and active citizens, shaping society for the better. The charity seeks to make a positive impact on the cultural and economic capital of Ripon and its region.

Ripon Museum's mission is to use the unique trio of the Workhouse, Prison & Police and Courthouse Museums, our collections and the stories they tell to help people explore big issues such as fairness, equality, justice and welfare. We will work for greater participation in our heritage which will enrich lives and improve wellbeing.
