This stunning sculpture welcomes you to the York Army Museum


The York Army Museum offers visitors a unique experience. We curate the history of two current serving regiments of the British Army: The Royal Dragoon Guards and The Yorkshire Regiment. One cavalry, one infantry; each of these regiments can trace its history back over three hundred years. Both have a historic connection to Yorkshire and its people.

Following a recent £1 million refurbishment, York Army Museum is now open as an exciting and engaging visitor attraction, with something to offer for all ages.

The Museum is divided into 6 zones for visitors to explore, with different themes in each. In addition to this we have a temporary exhibition space, which hosts a programme of exciting installations. Throughout the museum are interactive activities and chances to get hands on with history.
