This is very informative and interesting museum. It doesn't take long to look around and is certainly worth a visit.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

This is worth a look round - unfortunately they wouldn't accept the children as boarders though! A good insight into Lichfield's past

“What prison used to be like....”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Whilst only a small (and free) attraction, thie Guildhall cells manage to evoke very effectively what is was like to be in prison in the past. Manages to provide lots of information about the prison system and some of the inmates in a very painless way!
