Celebrating Ryedale’s Rich Heritage

The Ryedale Folk Museum is open seven days a week and we look forward to welcoming you in our 50th birthday year! 

Nestled in the beautiful village of Hutton-le-Hole, in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, the museum offers a unique glimpse of the past. For half a century we’ve conserved some of Ryedale’s most magnificent bits of heritage for future generations to enjoy.

Our atmospheric buildings and collections, spread over six acres, tell a story about a rural way of life from the Iron Age to the 1950s. So come and explore our friendly museum and enjoy a great day out for all the family!

Did you know the Ryedale Folk Museum is award-winning? Last year we received the wonderful accolade of Small Visitor Attraction of the Year at the White Rose Awards. If you’ve visited the museum recently and want to share your experience with others, why not leave a review on TripAdvisor?


We also have a fantastic art gallery (free admission) and our next exhibition of work by Carol Coleman and Sandra Middleton opens on Friday 10 October and ends on Sunday 23 November.
