"York Castle Museum" Castle Museum Tip by Dabs
Castle Museum, York: 40 reviews and 80 photos
Give yourself plenty of time to visit this museum, a minimum of 2 hours but more than that if you can spare it.
Housed in the old prison, the Castle Museum is full of displays on social issues in England from farming to housewives to life during WWII, with rooms from typical homes from several different eras, examples of dress, children's toys, streets filled with shops from the Victorian & Edwardian periods.
One of my favorite sections was "From Cradle to Grave" which discussed changing customs over the years regarding birth, death and marriage.
At the end of the museum you'll see some of the old prison cells and an exhibit on infamous highwayman Dick Turpin.
Admission was L6.80 for adults, if you hang onto your ticket and plan on going back to York, you can revisit for free for the next 12 months!!!
