The girls and especially the hubby enjoyed this. The cafe at the museum does THE best hot chocolate for me and babyccino for the girls, they won't try Costa again!

We booked well ahead in times of pandemic. We visited with another couple and their children. Though most of the experience seems geared towards family and kids, adults can have an enjoyable experience. It felt spaced and safe even in covid times. A lot of information to be gleaned from walking around.

Went to railway museum with our children and thoroughly enjoyed it. Booked a time online and when we arrived they had a well organised system during the current Covid times. Would recommend it as it's one of Yorks must do's!

Took the kids for a day out and you definitely need a few hours its huge. Unfortunately some parts like train interiors are not accessible due to virus safety measures. Also if you want extras like a ride on the mini railway or the Mallard experience you need to book well in advance as numbers are very limited due to social distancing. All the staff are very helpful and the science stations doing little experiments were vary entertaining.

Good controls in place, pre book time slot and tickets has been very effective at controlling numbers of visitors. A lot is open to viewing but covid controls have forced some trains to be closed off and some areas too. Still a good visit for a couple of hours.
