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.

A brilliant place based at the old railway station. We learnt so much in our hour long visit here. The museum traces the history of the Dales through time and has plenty to interest children and adults alike. There is also a small shop selling goods related to the area.

Wifi didnt work on the QR trail. Even with map we missed a section of the trail around the place. Lots of hands on for kiss and excellent models. Bit boring for 20 to 45 age range if no kids in tow
