York Castle Museum Partial Closure

We have received confirmation that the north side of York Castle Museum, which houses Kirkgate, the Period Rooms and Shaping the Body has RAAC in the roofing. In line with government guidelines the building will remain closed until we have undertaken the necessary specialist inspections. The rest of York Castle Museum, including the Prison Cells, the Sixties Gallery and the First World War Gallery will remain open. We will update the website and social media channels as soon as more information becomes available. 

If you have any enquiries about bookings please contact 01904 687687or contact us through our enquiries form. 

Please be kind and patient with our team as we work through a much higher level of enquiries than usual.
