Incredible building that was hiding beneath a modern facade. So glad this was rescued from demolition and restored faithfully using centuries old techniques. Well worth the £6 each to upkeep this building.

Again you must be interested in life in Tudor times to see this building, but well worth the time if you are.

Visited as part of York Pass, and possibly wouldn't have but saw the costume exhibition advertised. Well worth it as you are free to touch everything in this reconstructed building. Just over the road from a branch of Bettys tearoom, so pop in for a...More

A neat reconstruction of a medieval townhome, showing how life may have been 600 years ago. A good joint venue with the Jorvick ticket, this attraction is best for families with children.

This is a lovely exhibition. Everything is touchable! It is very interesting to an adult but as it is so interactive I think it would be great for children.

I would leave around 2 hours as the different displays may provoke more interest than others.
