I had to use google maps to find this museum as it’s nestled in a courtyard of surrounding buildings and accessed via an unassuming alley is normally walk past. It’s well worth a visit.

This has been done well, to show how science and religion were depicted in medieval times. It's a hands on exhibition with some interesting items, but a bit sparse. There were school groups in while we were there so it was noisy and we didn't really get a chance for a proper look round,

Let's face it, this basically is the site of a once medieval hall which doesn't even have the correct name. Quite difficult to find amongst the alleyways we only just chanced upon it. A poorly presented film at the beginning, which was difficult to hear due to noisy school children, showed how a falling down building was rebuilt with very little of the original fabric. It was then renamed for the chairman of the project, how very egotistical.
With a couple of bits of old furniture, the rest reconstructions, there was very little information about the original use of the hall, as a town house/hospice for an important priory and then a city rental for a wealthy family.
The main "attraction" of the building was a reading session of magic, charms, dreams etc, although quite interesting in itself, seemed out of place.
The most impressive part of the building was the floor in the great hall.
We happened upon the school children at one point, seated on the floor having a guessing game. The children were not very engaged as every few moments it descended into noisy chaos over which the two young ladies running the session had no control with the teachers looking on bemused.

Certainly worth a visit to learn about Medieval Britain and York. Interesting rooms covering how Magic was viewed at the time and how this 'Magic' was, in part, the beginning of science.

Great place to see a lot of information. Sadly a few interesting rooms were up wooden stairs so if you had mobility problems you would'nt get to see everything. This cannot be helped because of the age of the building. The staff are very helpful though and very informative.Worth a visit.
