Sketch of the museum

Welcome to the Grassington Folk Museum in Upper Wharfedale

We have reminders of yesteryear... exhibits of lead mining, minerals, craft tools, lathes, Dales farming, period costumes, domestic accoutrements, World War II memorabilia, folk lore and the days of the Yorkshire Dales Railway recalled.

Museum opening times

The Museum is now closed until the Saturday before Easter 2016 - Saturday, 19th March - at 2pm and thereafter, depending on the availability of volunteers, daily from 2pm to 4.30pm.

We shall be open for the Dickensian Saturdays (5th, 12th and 19th December 2015) from about 10.00am until 4.30pm. There will be a charge of £1.00 for adults to look round the museum (no charge for accompanied children). For £2.50 for adults and £1.00 for children, apart from looking round the museum collection, visitors are also welcome to sit in the kitchen and enjoy the warmth of a ‘real’ fire with coffee, tea, hot chocolate or orange squash available with warm home-made mince pies or biscuits.
