Visit the Museum

Welcome to Ryedale Folk Museum

There’s lots of great days out for families in the North York Moors National Park. Ryedale Folk Museum is the perfect venue for everyone from children to grandparents too! Set in over six acres in beautiful Hutton le Hole, the Museum is the ideal location to explore the region’s history and stories, told through 40,000 objects within more than twenty heritage buildings.

There’s lots to see and do in our open-air museum. Don’t miss the medieval Manor House or Iron-Age Roundhouse. Call by the farming area, or find the perfect picnic site in our pretty heritage orchard. We’re also a dog-friendly day trip so don’t forget your canine friends too.
