Owner description: Dales Countryside Museum shares the stories of the people and places of the Yorkshire Dales. Fun and fascinating things for visitors of all ages to enjoy. Housed in the former railway station, the Museum has been extended to create an exciting space for exhibitions and events. Step back in time and experience the wonder of beautifully crafted objects like our Bronze Age spearhead. Get crafty on the Creation Station, enjoy the outdoor trail and temporary exhibitions. There's lots of fun for families with our Crafts for Kids events on Wednesdays and Fun Fridays through the school holidays. See traditional skills brought to life at our demo days or learn a new skill yourself at one of our events. We have 4 temporary exhibitions a year, so you can make the most of them with an Annual Pass.

This was one of the best local museums I have come across, presenting the history and features of the Dales in a fresh and accessible way.

I have been round the museam on a couple of occassions, it explains the history of the Yorkshire dales area very well,and also the way the inhabitants lived. Even my six year old grandaughter enjoyed her visit.
