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.

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 audio visual 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. Take a look at the practical details here.
