About York Castle Museum, York

York Castle Museum isn’t just going to show you the past - it’s going to let you be a part of it. The museum stands on the site of York Castle, built in 1068 by William the Conqueror. The present edifice used to be a Debtor’s Prison and the museum has used this disturbing detail to its advantage.

York Castle Museum covers major segments of English history in a creative fashion that makes for an absolute sensory delight. In different sections of the museum, visitors get to see, smell, hear, taste and touch the world as it used to be. There are rooms designed to showcase life and culture in different periods of English history. You will see Edwardian dining rooms, Victorian walkways and kitchens from the sixties all under one roof.

  • Kirkgate – Walk down the mock up for a Victorian street. You can walk into the shops and sample the luxurious fabrics and traditional pastries offered to you by actors in Victorian garbs. Take in the aroma of a culture and society long lost…including the pungent smell of horse shit and public lavatories. Aren’t we glad times have changed?
  • Prison Cells – Witness the hologram projections of prisoners who were incarcerated for petty crimes and now narrate their sad tales to you
  • The Sixties – The visual design, patterns and colours of this section present a brilliant mock-up of the Sixties in Britain. A functional jukebox, a Lambretta scooter, record players stocked with Beatles hits are some of the popular features here.
  • Toy Stories – The toys in this collection have been entertaining kids for over 150 years. See if you can point out something that looks familiar.

 'When the World Changed Forever’ – From June 2014, York Castle Museum has a new attraction. Marking the hundredth anniversary of the First World War this year, the museum will show you a peaceful pre-war era before taking you into the morbidity and gloom of the frontline and the immense changes it brought into the country’s daily life.
