The Yorkshire Museum is home to some of Britain's finest archaeological treasures and the history of England until 1550 can be traced through its galleries.
It also specialises in geology and biology and its rocks, fossils, animal and plant materials are often used in our special exhibitions.
The museum is open daily from 10am until 5pm, except 25 and 26 December and 1 January.
The gardens are open daily during the summer from 7.30am until 8pm and during the winter until dusk. The observatory is open every Tuesday and Thursday, and every other Friday, (10 and 24 August, 7 and 21 September) from 1pm until 4pm. Entry to the gardens and the observatory is free.
