About us

Housing some of the finest collections of archaeological and geological finds in Europe, the Yorkshire Museum is the ideal first port of call for any trip to York. From prehistory to the city's medieval splendour, see the whole story in our fantastic galleries.

Walk on a genuine Roman mosaic floor, kneel at St William's medieval shrine and see the monsters of the deep that swam when Yorkshire was beneath the sea. Seek out the Roman Gods, spot the finest Anglian helmet ever discovered and marvel at one of the country’s greatest treasures - the beautiful Middleham Jewel - all in the heart of the city.

Get the most out of York - see the Yorkshire Museum first.

York Museum Gardens

Welcome to York Museum Gardens - a place to relax and unwind in the heart of the city. Relax in the peaceful gardens, explore the ruins of St Mary's and discover the Roman history of the multangular tower.
