Discover thousands of years of York's history in one place, from prehistory to the city's medieval splendour. Walk on a genuine Roman mosaic floor, kneel at St William's shrine, see the monsters of the deep that swam when Yorkshire was beneath the see and much more in our fantastic galleries in the hear of the city.

I can't believe they charge £7.50 for this place. I visited The national museum of Scotland last week and it was free admission for somewhere you could spend a whole day visiting. This museum was tired and really in need of some TLC. Some items...More

Well worth a visit. The Viking exhibition is excellent; there are some amazing exhibits and it's hard to believe that some of the jewellery is 1200 years old. There are lots of interactive options for children including knot tying and dressing up. The Roman exhibits...More

It's a wonderful museum and worth the visit. There's so much to learn.The historical narratives are both clear and engaging. They cater for all age ranges. It fell just short of presenting the region's history fully (as you'd expect with such a museum). I would...More

Well worth a visit. Not quite the London Natural History Museum but still very good in its own right. Loved the collection of original books upstairs of William Smith and John Phillips. Fascinating exhibits on the Roman and Viking influence as well as some excellent...More

There was a Viking feature on the lower floor. This is my wife's favourite museum in York. Just outside is St Mary's Abbey and of course the museum is situated in the Museum Gardens.

This small museum has a lot to recommend it - real history and fun exhibits for adults and children, worth an hour or two of your time. It is never crowded and located in the beautiful museum gardens.
