Highlights for school groups in 2017

We are the principal Museum site for learning about the Iron Age in the Yorkshire region. Our Iron Age Activity Day is a fantastic opportunity to experience Iron Age life in our Round House. Tailored to supporting your pre-history learning, our Activity Day has become sought-after by local schools and those further afield.

We are able to tailor a range of activities to the needs of your further or higher education group – from hands-on activities to talks about the business and charity of Ryedale Folk Museum. Please contact our learning team to discuss your requirements.
