The Yorkshire Museum of Farming is located in Murton Village just outside York. The museum occupies the large site of Murton Park which is also home to the Danelaw Centre for Living History, The Derwent Valley Light Railway, The York and District Beekeepers Association and is also the base for the York and District Guild of Spinners, Weavers, and Dyers. We are the only museum in the district specifically dedicated to the agricultural history of the Ridings of Yorkshire which encompass diverse terrain from the Wolds and the coastal North York Moors to the Pennine Dales, and are noted for both livestock and arable farming.
Please note: The museum collection is closed until Easter 2016. The site will remain open for school groups.
