YORK CASTLE MUSEUM
Astonishingly varied museum, which includes walk-through reconstructed streets and rooms through the ages. The museum has an enormous collection to suit all ages, usually imaginatively and thoughtfully arranged. It occupies the 'new' 18th century castle, which was at one time used as a prison. There is a walk-through prison experience, too, which includes realistic audio-visuals. Pricey - but recommended.
