A beautiful museum in the small market town of Pickering.

Perfect for visiting when the sun's shining to enjoy the outdoor farm courtyard and riverside picnic area and just as great to spend time exploring our 27 themed rooms during the occasional Yorkshire rain shower.

We have demonstrations and talks from our expert volunteers and can also provide tours for your school or group.
