Best for First-time visitors - Expert review of Yorkshire Museum
This is an engaging place to start if arriving in York for the first time and wanting to get an introductory grasp of its local history. Reopened after a multi-million pound make-over, the new look Yorkshire Museum is the place to learn about the history of the city and the surrounding area from prehistory onwards. Romans, Vikings, Normans and Anglo-Saxons are all introduced over five galleries of interactive fun and understanding. The lower ground floor features parts of the St. Mary’s Abbey structure and details the history of this important ecclesiastical setting. Visit my Museum Gardens page for information on the surrounding landscaped public park and things to see amongst it.
