MARICOPA COUNTY'S


LEGAL HISTORY


LIVES HERE


About Us

Our Purpose

 Built around a famous jail at an active and historic courthouse, the Museum educates adults and students interested in local history and the Justice System by providing an interactive experience highlighting key civil and criminal rights cases as well as significant Maricopa County legal events. 

Our Hope

 We hope all visitors leave with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the law – that one person can make a difference, that the legal system can and should better our society, and that the legal profession is an honorable calling 

Historic Courthouse

 This unique museum opened in 2012 and is centered around a restored cell block on the sixth floor of Maricopa County’s Historic Courthouse – the Courthouse has been renovated to its 1929 grandeur.
