Absolutely loved the place, lots to see and full off interesting things. Brilliant for children. For me the Victorian street was the best, really magical. Felt very Harry Potter like :) I most definitely recommend people visit here

We loved it here so much to see and learn about times gone by and both wars. The Victorian Street has been done so well and the whole experience here was totally magical and well worth the entrance fee

Paid £11 each to go in here and it was a treasure trove of interesting historical features going through the ages. Interactive, well laid out and suitable for all ages. Would recommend.

We have visited a few times over the last 11 years but each time there is something new. The best museum in York and excellent value for money.

Worth every penny 🙂. There is something for everybody. Alan was great with his tour of the Victorian Street. Sad to say some of the toys I played with are in a museum. Well laid out. The WWI experience very good
