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
Tuesday - Sunday from 2pm until 4.30pm. The museum is free to look round.
Museum now open
After the hectic year of 2012 due to us obtaining funding from the Heritage Lottery fund, the Museum has now reopened for the new season. There is still plenty of work to be achieved and the committee and helpers have a full time job on their hands and are always looking for volunteers. If you can help in any way please pop into the Museum. The committee is trying to keep more in touch with the volunteers and also to keep volunteers in touch with each other, and involving them more in Museum decisions.
This year we are not charging an admission fee...
But if you like what you see, there is a donation box.
Grand Volunteers Meet
In April we had a Grand Volunteers Meet led by Linda Brandish, who came to us courtesy of the York Museums Trust.
The New Crowther Room
The new Crowther Room is up and running and a group of volunteers has been beavering away to catalogue all the exhibits on to computer; as you can imagine this is a long and arduous task (not to mention the endless cups of tea and coffee!). Seriously, they are doing a fantastic job.
Museum Open Day
On Saturday 16th February, the Museum held an open day to show off the alterations we had made with the Lottery Fund. The attendence was excellent especially as so many locals came to support it.
