The National Railway Museum is now open. Please book your free admission tickets in advance or request a visit for education groups

The green backbone to the museum’s development, South Yard will provide our community with open space to picnic and play.

Nestled adjacently to the York Central townscape, South Yard will be a place to rest and reflect. Train rides, event spaces and hospitality outlets will add dynamism and entertainment to the space, creating a welcoming outdoor museum area for all. South Yard will be delivered in spring 2023.
