Take a step back in time at this museum, which explores hundreds of years of York’s history. The interactive galleries keep younger visitors engaged, while the star attraction is a reconstructed Victorian street, with a schoolroom, police cell and authentic shops. You can also visit the 18th-century prison buildings the museum are housed in, where past inmates, including the legendary Dick Turpin, are brought to life. Special children’s boxes packed with a selection of tasty treats are available in Café 68, which has huge windows offering glorious views of the Eye of York and Clifford’s Tower.
