Beck Isle Museum is a beautiful Grade II* listed museum in the small market town of Pickering. It’s dedicated entirely to local history and there’s certainly lots to learn with a whopping 25 rooms!
The first-floor gallery changes annually so there’s always something interesting to discuss. In 2017 the exhibition has been titled ‘50 years in 50 objects’ as a celebration of the museum’s anniversary and investigates their weird and wonderful archive.
Be sure to visit the WW1 project. A team of volunteers have been the researching the fallen men and boys of Pickering who gave their lives to the war effort. Elsewhere check out their series of photos looking at the life of a blacksmith, a Victorian mourning gown and original butter pats. Kids can even get dressed up in era specific gear and interact with created environments from Victorian times, like greengrocers, chemists, printers and if you’re feeling particularly fancy, a gentleman’s outfitters!
