Yorkshire Museum

Yorkshire Museum

The Yorkshire Museum is a unique venue for celebrations, corporate functions, or ceremonies. The neoclassical building was completed in 1831 to hold one of Britain’s oldest public museums. Now, cutting-edge displays house beautiful treasures of Yorkshire’s archaeological and scientific past.

The light, airy galleries are a wonderful space to host any event and we can host events for up to 300 people.

Conferences & workshops

The Yorkshire Museum’s Tempest Anderson Hall seats 295 for lectures, award ceremonies or film-screenings (it is used annually for York's Aesthetica Film Festival) and is available for both day-time hire and for most evenings. It has high-quality audiovisual technology and can be hired in conjunction with The Hospitium.

Parties & Special Occasions

The Yorkshire Museum is an ideal venue for a drinks reception or buffet for up to 300 people using the Main Hall and Medieval Gallery. We can also host stunning banquets in the Main Hall for up to 30 guests.
