See North Yorkshire’s countryside and coast on a day trip from York. An in-depth overview of the northern county’s delights, this day trip takes you to more sites than you’d manage to see alone. Explore North York Moors National Park, Whitby, and filming locations in Goathland—a treat for 'Heartbeat' and Harry Potter fans alike. Finally, finish with a steam train ride across the moors.

Wow what a show! We visited the museum and was blown away by how much fun we had! The hosts were amazing and accommodating and were great to chat to during the tea and cake midway break All we can say is if your near the North Yorkshire this is a must visit location and you will learn sooo much ! 5 Stars !

This really is a one-of-a-kind museum! It was perfect for my husband and I and our two adult sons. We are all really interested in history and were blown away by Tony's knowledge and enthusiasm for his subject. Refreshments part-way through were delicious too. Thank you Tony and Pat.

This was one of the greatest experiences of my entire life. An extraordinary glimpse into science and it's history. I won't give away too much, but it is essentially the most fascinating science and history journey you could wish for, with live demonstrations using Victorian devices to illustrate old tales and discoveries. I only hope that the Museum and the experience can last for mony more lifetimes, so that many more generations to come can continue to be enraptured. Tony and Pat have created a masterpiece. If you are reading this, thank you both so much again and I encourage so much for you to invite the BBC or someone like that to capture and broadcast this epic encounter to a wider audience - the benefits would be enormous and there are so many people I know who would love it but may never make it to Yorkshire to visit!

Well worth a visit We often visit Whitby on a day out so only have time for a quick look around and of course Fish & Chips. But as we were here for a full week I had looked up places to visit & spotted the Musuem of Victorian Science. As a retired engineer, I had started my working life repairing TV's. and had grown up learning about cathode ray tubes etc, so I had a interest in what had come before. We enjoyed our visit and loved the demonstrations which i am not going to say anything about as I recommend you book a visit yourself. Thanks for the warm welcome and the tea & cakes

Excellent collection, well interpreted and engagingly described. And a great tea break too. Works well for the scientist or for the inexperienced but interested.
