Went here on a recent trip to York. We had a brilliant time - can't praise it enough. Spent 3 hours and we were both totally enthralled. It's great value for money - they have put so much effort into everything. The Victorian Street is amazing - going in and out of the shops - the noises ....and smells!! Quite nostalgic seeing all the things from the fifties and sixties. I could go on and on....but you need to go see it yourself!

Some very good displays but several areas empty due to being re-oragnised thought £10 a little expensive

Informative,evocative, atmospheric, even nostalgic for a couple in their fifties! Not my wifes "thing" but she thought it was one of the best things about our trip to York.

Love the museum and suitable for the whole family although are rather alot of stairs. If possible late afternoon for a visit as its quieter. one admission ticket covers it for the full year. I'm on a paranormal night there in August and can't wait
