Sketch of the museum

Welcome to the Grassington Folk Museum in Upper Wharfedale

We have reminders of yesteryear... exhibits of lead mining, minerals, craft tools, lathes, Dales farming, period costumes, domestic accoutrements, World War II memorabilia, folk lore and the days of the Yorkshire Dales Railway recalled.

Museum opening times

We hope to open every day, Sunday to Saturday, for the 2017 February half-term week (19th-25th) from 2pm until 4.30pm.

Then we intend to be open every day from Saturday, 25th March 2017 until the end of October 2017, from 2pm until 4.30pm. Whenever possible we shall also be open from 11.00am.

As we are entirely volunteer-run, opening on any particular day does depend on the availability of volunteers. There is no specific entry charge but donations are very welcome and, in fact, are essential to our continuation as the local folk museum.
