A good museum for all ages. Well laid out.
Can get a combined ticket with the Yorkshire Museum (Which I would only recommend for children)
Free for Art Fund ticket holders

The York Castle Museum is great fun. It has recreated a Victorian street so you can get a sense of what life was like. It's great to explore the shops and the streets. Very cool. Well work a visit.
