About Ryedale Folk Museum
Nestled in the beautiful village of Hutton le Hole in the North York Moors National Park, Ryedale Folk Museum is Yorkshire’s leading open-air museum.
With 40,000 objects set within 20 heritage buildings, beautifully displayed across a 6-acre site, we tell the stories of the people of the area. Our site is entirely dog-friendly, so bring your canine friends too. Don’t miss:
- Traditional workshops of the blacksmith, cobbler, wheelwright, tinsmith, cooper and carpenter
- A stunning thatched Manor House, with colossal crucks
- A Medieval crofter’s cottage, an 18th century thatched longhouse and a Victorian thatched cottage, washhouse, dairy and schoolroom
- A vintage chemist and nostalgic village store
- The atmospheric reconstructed Iron Age roundhouse.
Look out for family-friendly games including giant Merrills and the coconut shy. Play house in a classic gypsy caravan or try out the children’s tractor zone. Take a trip to the cornfield, featuring rare and endangered plant species. And don’t forget to call by the farming area to feed the animals before you go!
Bring a picnic to enjoy in our picturesque heritage orchard picnicking site.
Our Art Gallery is FREE to visit, with a changing programme of art exhibitions throughout the year and art to buy.
