  • As a member of the Richard 111 Society I was really looking forward to seeing this. It's quite good, but not outstanding. I thought the references to all the recent discoveries which have had a positi...  more »

  • A great museum with lots to see, plenty of information and and a half hr film to watch, well worth a visit
  • Not a great deal to see, but reasonable value if paired with visit to Henry VII Experience. Walk along the walls to the other gate house has great views of the Minster.
  • The museum itself is a little gimmicky, but seeing the inside of the medieval gatehouse makes the cost of entry worth it.
  • Pretty good value for £5 but when compared to other attractions such as the Jorvik centre, fairly limited in information and activities.
  • This museum concentrates on the background and life of King Richard III, contains some unique items including a skeleton recovered from near the battle of Towton. On display are a number of pieces from the Towton battlefield including a very rare piece of an exploded gun barrel. A combined ticket with the Henry VII Experience at Micklegate Bar makes this definitely worth visiting combined with the (free) wall walk which will take you around half the city and provide you with good views of the cathedral. There are a number of scale models displaying the equipment and liveries of the main characters involved in the Battle of Bosworth and smaller scale models that with a good impression of several battles of the period.
