York Castle Museum

Venture into the prison cell of notorious highwayman Dick Turpin, wander through the Victorian streets and shops of old York and experience four hundred years of fascinating social history. Young or old, you'll treasure the experience of York Castle Museum.

York Castle Museum is a unique combination of everyday life and extraordinary objects. From 19th century cobbled streets to 1960s toys through the ages, from 16th century iron helmets to 20th century flak jackets, the Museum is famous for some of the finest collections in the country.

With over 100,000 items on show, you'll be amazed at what's here. You can spend as little as two hours in the Museum, or with a break in the caf´┐Ż and a visit to the watermill (open during the summer), York Castle Museum can be a whole day out.
