Yorkshire Museum
Yorkshire Museum
The Yorkshire Museum is an archaeological treasure trove boasting some of the finest historical artefacts in all of Europe. Permanent exhibits trace the history of Yorkshire from the earliest times.
Major exhibits include Roman mosaics and jewelry, a gilt Anglo-Saxon bowl, and superb Viking weapons and clothing. The 15th century Middleham jewel is a remarkable gold pendant with a sapphire attatched.
Other displays show the changing pattern of the geography and climate of York over the past 300 million years. There are also regular temporary exhibits ranging from art to dinosaurs and beyond.
The museum stands in Museum Gardens, immediately beside the ruins of St Mary's Abbey.

Note: You can get a joint ticket to the Yorkshire Museum and the nearby York Castle Museum for a considerable savings.
