Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

The charming Dales Countryside Museum tells the story of the local folk and landscape of the Yorkshire Dales from deep past up to present times, and works to encourage visitors to think about the region's future. You can ride" the static train and journey through time... Themes include school days, home life, leisure time, religion, transport, communication and tourism, farming, local crafts and industries.
Interesting displays help interpret the development of the Dales from prehistoric times forwards and there are also events, demonstrations of traditional crafts and ever changing temporary exhibitions help bring the Museum alive.
The Museum itself is housed a conversion of the Hawes railway station and has many interactive little touches that help keep the kids interested and moving through, including a minor excursion into a mock up lead mine!
Great for those interested in history already but equally useful for encouraging kids to get started on thinking about such things and terrific for extra credit / back up projects for school! It's also sedate enough to take grandparents along too."
