Ideas for the Future of York Castle Museum – Sun 1 Sep 2019
Ideas for the future of York Castle Museum are developing. These ideas have been inspired by discussions over the past two years with people who live and work in York who want to see the area opened up and to make the Castle and Eye of York an area where you feel you’ve arrived somewhere very special.
Join Reyahn King, York Museums Trust’s Chief Executive, and Emma Hamlett, York Castle Museum Curator, to explore both the challenges and exciting possibilities for York Castle Museum. We’ll be looking at everything from what makes a brilliant welcome for visitors to how to bring to life the incredible histories of Prisons and the museum collections as well as looking at the serious issues of leaky roofs and financial sustainability.
A crucial and exciting question will explore how a new indoor public space might complement new outdoor public spaces once Castle Car Park is removed? What views would you want to glimpse? Should it be a free museum giving an overview of the history of the area? Or more like a gathering place, a dry place to hang out in all weathers?
There are three available time slots on this day to attend the event:
