Yorkshire Museum and Gardens

The Yorkshire Museum sits in the heart of York Museum Gardens, in the centre of York.

The museum was opened in 1830 by the Yorkshire Philosophical Society and was one of the first purpose-built museums in the country.

Reopened on 1 August 2010 following a nine-month £2million refurbishment project the Museum houses five galleries showcasing some of Britain’s finest archaeological treasures and many rare animals, birds and fossils, in exciting displays.

Our aim is to make the Yorkshire Museum a must-see destination in a tour around the beautiful city of York.

The refurbishment work has also restored the museum’s Georgian building, letting in more natural light and opening up spaces that have been divided up over the years.

The ten-acre botanical Museum Gardens, around the Yorkshire Museum, stretch from the River Ouse up to the back of York Art Gallery, and from Marygate on one side to Museum Street on the other.

Set in the stunning surroundings of the medieval ruins of St. Mary’s Abbey, this is a great space to meet friends and family and enjoy the peace and tranquillity that the gardens have to offer.

These gardens are famous for their fantastic collection of trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs.
