A few weeks ago we visited the Yorkshire Museum. It sits in the middle of the beautiful York Museum Gardens in the centre of York.

We went to the Yorkshire Museum in York for the Jurassic World Exhibition mostly. This exhibition looks back through 150 million years of history to see what dinosaurs and sea monsters roamed Yorkshire.

Yorkshire Museum Review

There are other exhibitions too, Medieval York: Captial of the North. It looks at religion, royal power, commerce, art, conflict and wealth across the Anglian, Viking, Norman, Medieval and Tudor periods. You get the chance to discover how the most powerful people in the world once ruled from within York’s City Walls.

There’s also a great exhibition about Roman York, life before the invasion and what it was like to live there.

There are lots of stories of individuals from these times, which are always my favourite part of the museum. Like the story of The Wealthy Lady who was found buried with expensive items.

A lot of city museums are the same, they tell the story of their history. What makes them unique is the different stories of people that really lived in those times.

This is a small museum and doesn’t take long to go around. We went to the Jurassic World exhibition but that was probably my least favourite part!

If you have a couple of hours spare, the Yorkshire Museum is worth a visit.
