Admission Fees & Opening Times

We operate a small admission charge of £3 for adults. Carers and accompanied children can visit Nidderdale Museum free of charge.

Normally the Museum is open 1.30-4.30p.m. every day from 1st April to 31st October, and 1.30-4.30p.m. Saturdays and Sundays only from November to end of March.
2022 has seen a reduction in opening hours as we are reliant on volunteer stewards, but they are now increasing again.
From 1st June 2022 the Museum will be open 1.30 – 4.30p.m. daily except Mondays.  The change to winter opening will be displayed in the website.
However, if you are travelling far it will be wise to check opening hours.  It can happen that volunteers back out at the last minute!
