Barley Hall
#9 of 40 Museums in York
Some other museums could learn a lot from this little place on how to engage children's interest!
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this exquisite museum; a 'must' for those interested in Tudor history, and for a 'bird's eye view' into the daily life of a wealthy medieval family.

York Art Gallery
#12 of 40 Museums in York
I have often found smaller museums to be just the right size to experience while traveling and to come away with a better sense of both the mission, the locale and the history than I do with large institutions.
The building is just lovely, the galleries easy to navigate, and the curation of both fine art, ceramics and pottery so fresh and inspiring – both the museum collection and the changing exhibitions.
Yorkshire Museum
#13 of 40 Museums in York
One of us had free entry due to being a member of the Museums Association and the other has a YMT card which is good value if you are someone who likes museums and art galleries; it lasts for a full year.
We are YMT card holders and for anyone living within an hour of York this is a great scheme - for £22 per year you get unlimited access to 2 museums and the York Art Gallery (children are free).
The Roman Bath
#14 of 40 Museums in York
Easy to walk to shops and museums.
The staff are amazingly friendly and know their stuff, so easy to talk to and the museum its self has lots to see and there is a little bit at the back where you can try on costumes.
