From Our Editors

Ryedale Folk Museum features cottage gardens, traditional cornfield and atmospheric historic dwellings from prehistory to the 1950s, including an Iron Age roundhouse and a Tudor manor house. Some of the structures were saved from demolition and rebuilt by volunteers, while other have been recreated from the ground up. The buildings house period-specific collections assembled over the last five decades, attempting to show how people lived, worked and played in the past. To enhance the experience, the facility also offers activities such as Victorian toy making or countryside craft workshops.

We were blessed with a sunny day, which made the visit easier as a lot of the time you are outdoors. Very interesting insight into how we once lived but the stars of the show, without doubt, were the three piglets who squeelingly led us to the point were we could buy them food. Great scenery and very helpful staff. No reservations in recommending a visit.

Great day at Ryedale. Much more than I expected with very interesting buildings and contents. You can also feed the chickens and pigs. There are small packets of food which can be purchased by them for just 50p. Great way to spend 2-3 hours.

An excellent visit. This place is like a tardis. Decieving from outside and massive inside. Took us 3 hrs to go around and Im sure we never took everything in so a revisit is planned.

We have been to Folk Museum before although it was a few years ago. There seem to be many changes and improvements to the exhibits, and a new indoor museum housing the Harrison Collection. The animal attractions that teach about farming was really lovely! The ladies in the museum were welcoming and knowledgeable and couldn't have made the experience better. The Groupon deal was good value but hadn't realised if you paid the full non-Groupon price the entry ticket is valid for 12 months free entry!! We only live 25 minutes away and visit Hutton le Hole often (or pass through it) so paying the full entry price with free additional entries for the year would be far better, especially if you live close by. If you are visiting the area and going to the museum as a one off, the Groupon deal is still worth it. I think next time I'll pay full price though for the additional perks (also, I can Gift Aid as well but this wasn't available through the Groupon purchase). Great day out!!
