Meet some objects from our collection who need your love!

Some objects from the York Castle Museum’s collection have ‘submitted’ a dating profile. They have all once been loved and now need someone new to love them.

You’ll have 2 minutes with each object to look at their profile and find out more about their past.

After 2 minutes, you’ll score each object – the one with the most points will be placed in our Museum of Broken Relationships exhibition as our ‘most dateable object’.

Click here to book your place via Eventbrite.

You can share your love for the objects by taking a picture with your top reason to date them.

Better yet: bring an object that represents your worst date or a broken relationship. Why? All will be revealed…
