Fascinating little museum with some real treasures. Shakespeare's first folio, who would have thought you would find one of the most important books in the history of the English Language in Skipton on permanent display. Great temporary exhibitions in the gallery, lots to do with...More

A real asset to Skipton. An eclectic collection of fascinating local history. Some great displays and all for no fee.

We were in the town hall then found out the museum was attached. It is very modern and located on the first floor. Light clean and airy... Full of history. Worth the £2 suggested donation.

Covers a lot- from various forms of mining to Shakespeares First Folio. World Wars, medieval and ancient history, all sorts of interesting life in Craven artefacts. Stories about notable residents. All sorts of other stuff to. Definitely worth a visit.

So much more interesting than you could imagine, a wide variety of exhibitions from a first folio of Shakespeare's to local curios.

Although we had visited Skipton a couple of times we had never visited the museum until this visit. It's lovely... very small but for its size more than worth a visit and DEFINATELY worth the £2 suggested donation per adult!!
