The heart of Pickering's Heritage

We’re excited to announce that the museum is now open Monday to Saturday until the end of October. We will also be open on bank holiday Sunday at the end of August.

Tickets can be bought on the door but buying in advance makes entry quicker and easier for you and helps us to manage visitor numbers.

Step back in time and enjoy discovering Pickering's fascinating heritage. Immerse yourself in the past and imagine having a drink in the pub, a haircut in the barber's or queueing for sweets at the grocers. Watch our blacksmiths as they work in the forge (ring for times). Explore our agricultural and craft exhibitions before admiring images of Pickering Past by celebrated local photographer Sydney Smith (1884-1958). Why not extend your visit and bring a picnic to enjoy in our beautiful grounds by the beck?
