Yorkshire Museum

Yorkshire Museum

The Yorkshire Museum sits in the heart of the York Museum Gardens in the centre of York and offers 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 and airy galleries are a wonderful space to host any event for up to 300 people.
