    My favourite museum in York, Kirkgate is worth the admission on its own! £10 per adult (also admits 2 kids free) joint ticket for here and Yorkshire museum, gift aid it and your ticket lasts a year!

    Was worth the entrance fee (children go free with a paying adult), some interesting sections on toys, food, and a full mock up of a Victorian street, complete with shops and schools.

    Great museum - can easily spend a couple of hours here with a lot to learn. A modest entry fee as well, would recommend to anyone!

    Kirkgate is a wonderfully atmospheric recreation of a Victorian street. The sweet shop there sells authentic nineteenth century treats!

    Simply an excellent Museum and good value. Victorian street and WW1 exhibition complete with trench leave a lasting impression

    I love the interaction area and the mid 1800s town. Well worth a stop! And this comes from a foreigner:)

    The museum is housed in prison buildings which were built on the site of the castle from the 18th century.

    This museum is so enjoyably intense- it is well worth the steep price of admission

    A great little museum with historic rooms and a street. Better than a load of old stuff in cabinets!

    Cafe is surprisingly reasonably priced and has a good view of Clifford's Tower

    Don't go during school holidays. Too many screaming children make you want to rush around the whole museum just to get out as fast as you can.

    £8 for an adult both kids were free so it worked out a very reasonable few hours

    Try and go when there are not going to be a lot of kids running around. Can be very annoying.

    £8 to get in and nothing special - certainly not worth the money. Typically overpriced attraction in York

    Don't eat here it's expensive and quite poor quality. Museum is good though

    la representación de la ciudad antiguamente vale la pena.. sobre todo en la época victoriana
