Incredible information with a multitude of interesting artefacts on display and run by passionate enthusiasts. A fantastic tribute to the settlers who founded York. So glad we made the visit. Ray and Anne (U.K.)

I've visited the Residency Museum in York several times and it's well worth it, every time. Interesting building, excellent displays and provides very interesting insight to York's (and Western Australia's) early settlement.

Yes, there is a small charge but it's great value, less than a cup of coffee! $4 for adults, $3 for seniors and $2 for children. There are six rooms with up to date displays and over twenty hands-on activities for families.
