There were several large rooms to tour. They housed many large interesting items. There were even cars, and a trolley. We go the impression that some of the stations we suppose to have people showing you things. That would have been and added plus.

Just happened to find this place while attending the Yorkfest Art show. This place details the industrial history of York. Lots of cars, steam engines and history. Really very interesting. Could have spend even more than the 3 hours that we did spend here.
