National Railway Museum

You are here:

York Central is an exciting development scheme with enormous potential to deliver economic growth, jobs and sustainable housing for the city.

Planning our future

The museum sits at the cultural heart of the York Central development, which is planned to become one of Britain’s largest brownfield regeneration sites.

Our vision for transformation

We have a £50 million vision to completely transform the museum to be fitting of the stunning new neighbourhood that will be created by York Central. We will bring the epic story of railways past, present and future alive and open up our world-class collections for even more people to enjoy. We aspire to complete this transformation by 2025—our 50th anniversary.

Our Masterplan comprises six key elements:
