Primarily aimed at children, DIG uncovers the joys of archaeological discovery.

Housed in the now converted St. Saviour’s Church, this family attraction offers kids the chance to get their hands dirty in this fully interactive learning experience. An insight into the work done by archaeologists in and around York, this lively experience gives the chance to rummage around excavation pits, explore the recreated labs and archaeological workspaces. There’s a 3D film presentation and around the corner is the ongoing Hungate excavation which for an extra £1.00 per person can be included in the overall experience.
