We have watched episodes of All Creatures Great and Small more than once so we decided to make a nostalgic trip to the museum on a Sunday morning. We weren't too sure what to expect but we got a two for one entrance with the James Herriot app so we figured if we didn't like it we weren't out of pocket too much. We ended up spending an enjoyable two hours in the museum. There was a re-creation of the house/vet surgery as well as lots of background information on Alf Wight and how the books came about. There was also a room with the sets from the TV show and all the old video equipment. Looking at the old video recorders and cameras was a trip down memory lane for me. I'm sure anyone who works in the field of veterinary medicine will enjoy the display of the old equipment. There was something for all ages in the museum. The museum staff (like everyone else we met in Thirsk) were very friendly and informative.
