The Local History Museum With Lots To See
SORRY – A little longer to wait!
According to the latest Government Roadmap, the Museum cannot be open before 17th May. Actual opening day, and the days of opening each week will depend on whether the roadmap dates stay the same, what restrictions are necessary at that time, and also the availability of stewards. We look forward to welcoming you again as soon as it is possible. See the postings on our Facebook page to keep in touch.
At teh last re-opening, visitors were asked to wear face coverings, but there was a one-way system in place, and only one group of visitors were in each of its 10 rooms at any one time, so contact with others will be minimal. All groups were asked to sign in with their contact details, and a new tap and pay system had been installed, though cash was still accepted. Almost all of the Museum was still accessible, as were the toilets. You can view here the Museum’s COVID Risk Assessment. The Museum is operated entirely by volunteers who are passionate about Nidderdale’s heritage, so why not come along and see what is there once we are open again. Cost per adult is £3 and accompanied children are free. We hope to see you very soon.
Nidderdale Museum has a large collection of exhibits, illustrating different aspects of life and work in Nidderdale through the ages. Run entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers, Nidderdale Museum has lots for visitors to see.
We have 11 separate rooms devoted to Leisure, Agriculture, Industry, Religion, Transport, Costume, plus an original Cobblers Shop, a Victorian Parlour room set, General Store, Schoolroom and much more. The Museum is a fantastic source of information and inspiration on local history, and an ideal activity for tourists and school groups.
