What a shame, this is an underused space in a wonderful location. We have visited this attraction for a number of its displays which are always thought provoking and interesting, even if there are always unused areas, these give the opportunity to admire the building itself. Unfortunately only once have any of the staff taken the slightest interest in us as visitors. Our latest visit being typical, no welcome, no information or guidance, the three visible staff were huddled at one end chatting and laughing. They glanced over then completely ignored us. We wondered round the installations, not all to our taste but interesting pieces none the less until a small group of young people entered, obviously known to the staff who rushed over to them and drew them into their socialising. We left as the noise level grew.
We couldn't help but feel that perhaps the York museums trust needs to train and supervise their staff at this attraction more effectively, their staff at the other attractions run by them are excellent,but they are let down here Sadly.
Additionally I would have liked to see a little more information about the exhibits and indeed the building itself.
Regretfully I have to give this the lowest rating I have given on any review to date.
