What our Visitors Think

 York Visitor Attraction of the Year 2011


"I thought the transformation of the museum was stunning – beautifully designed and laid out, accessible and informative. A light airy space. Being a York resident, I came many times previously and quite liked the old fashioned feel of the place, but I am completely won over."
