Come and see hundreds of years of York's history in one place – from recreated Jacobean dining rooms to infamous Victorian criminals and all the way to the Space Age and the swinging Sixties. There's something for everyone this year at York Castle Museum. Our interactive galleries hold thousands of historic objects that really bring the past to life, and our new exhibitions for 2014 promise fascinating displays and innovative new ways of learning about York's past. Don’t forget that kids go free with a paying adult – it's the perfect family day out. Exhibition: When the World Changed Forever. York Castle Museum's stunning new exhibition brings First World War to life like never before, on its hundredth anniversary.
