Pictures of York Castle Museum

a Museum in the town of York, in the county of North Yorkshire

About York Castle Museum

This fascinating museum offers a lively and interesting day out for every member of the family. The museum is housed in an atmospheric prison building from the 18th-century, which is now Grade I listed and is ideal as a back-drop for the imaginative settings and life-size reconstructions of street scenes from the past.

In this wonderful place you can really soak up the atmosphere of Victorian Kirkgate, you can feel the cosiness of a Victorian home, peer into shop windows and sample what it was like to visit a Victorian police station! Half Moon Court offers a brilliant reconstruction of daily life in York during the Edwardian era.

Other displays include the Jane Austen costume collection, and you can even visit the cell where the famous highway man Dick Turpin spent his last night before facing the executioner. There are valuable insights into the town's social history and a rich display of Yorkshire crafts, patchwork quilts, military exhibits and toys. The museum takes you back over hundreds of years and finally transports you to the trials and tribulations of the citizens of York during the days of World War II.

The opportunities to enjoy, learn and discover are limitless and should you be visiting this beautiful City then a visit to York Castle Museum is not to be missed.
