- York Art Gallery has recently undergone an incredible refurbishment and it shows: the interior of the building is one of the most beautiful in York, and it’s home to a great collection of permanent art and engaging temporary exhibitions. More impressively, it’s got lots of hands-on stuff for kids: let them sketch, sit for a digital portrait, touch sculptures or flick through art books to their hearts’ content. Our own children love visiting as there’s always something to do. The Gallery has won a Kids in Museums Award and it’s easy to see why.
Good to know – There are always fun creative activities at the Gallery during the school holidays. Don’t miss the pretty gardens at the back of the Gallery that lead through to the Museum Gardens (perfect for a picnic). The cafe, run by No8, is lovely for full meals or just a snack and there are activities to keep children occupied.
