The basics

Entry to the Yorkshire Museum of Farming is often included as part of York sightseeing passes. It’s a popular day out for families, with plenty of kid-friendly attractions, from nature trails and playgrounds to live animals.

Browse the Four Seasons exhibit, which charts the changing work of a farmer over the course of a year; the Livestock Gallery, which explores the history and practices of keeping domestic animals; and exhibits covering the work of the Women’s Land Army, which took over farming duties from departed soldiers during the world wars. The site is also the setting for the Danelaw Centre for Living History—which encompasses a reconstructed Viking village and Roman fort—and the last functioning stretch of the Derwent Valley Light Railway.

Derwent Valley Light Railway

The first trains ran along the track in July 1913, bringing passengers and goods between Layerthorpe Station in York to the village of Cliffe Common near Selby. Though the railway closed in 1981, a small section still operates within the grounds of Murton Park during the summer season (usually beginning in Easter) and at Christmas.
