Throughly enjoyed this museum. Although we went as a couple the museum is suitable for anyone. There was lots to do and see, and the set up of the victorian village was really impressive.

Been here many times as a child and with our own children. Visited this time with just my wife and we still thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots to see and well set out. Also great value at £10 per adult.

actually there is a separate museum. jorvik viking centre re-opened april 2017, and it's worth a visit. it is more of a children experience than an archeological museum but we enjoyed it very much
