Welcome to our website. Ryedale Folk Museum is a beautiful open-air museum in the North York Moors National Park and a wonderful place to visit, learn or volunteer.
Our 5 acre site covers 2,000 years of history from the Iron Age to the 1950s. Don’t miss our restored historic buildings, our Foldyard of agricultural machinery, a special display dedicated to The Life and Times of Photographer T Geoffrey Willey and the Highlights of the Harrison Collection exhibition.
In 2013 we have a fantastic Events Programme , an exciting range of Workshops and Evening Events and new Exhibitions and Displays (more details coming soon). Later this spring we will have a new library and research room – check back for details and opening times.
We hope to see you soon.
