The Local History Museum With Lots To See
Lockdown again, so the Museum is currently closed (January 2021). Given the uncertainty about when lockdown will be lifted, it is expected that the closure will remain in place throughout February and March. We hope it will be possible to re-open for the summer, but that will depend on restrictions and availability of stewards. Thank you to those who visited us last Autumn. It was a pleasure to welcome you, and we hope to see many more of you in 2021. See the postings on our Facebook page to keep in touch.
Visitors were asked to wear face coverings, but there is a one-way system in place, and only one group of visitors will be in each of its 10 rooms at any one time, so contact with others will be minimal. All groups are asked to sign in with their contact details, and a new tap and pay system has been installed, though cash is still accepted. Almost all of the Museum is still accessible, as are 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. 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.
