York Army Museum has something to offer for all ages, it’s also fully undercover so the perfect rainy day option!

York Army Museum is divided into 6 zones for visitors to explore, with different themes in each. Throughout the museum are interactive activities and chances to get hands on with history. There’s even more happening this October half term, all included in the admission price. Tickets also allow for unlimited visits in the following 12 months (what an absolute bargain!!!).


The Big Draw, Codebreaker and our Object Handling HQ

The Big Draw 2019 – Graffiti Day

Saturday 26 October
Celebrate the Big Draw 2019 at the York Army Museum. Taking inspiration from the museum exhibition and collections families can work with experienced local artists Mary and Sydnie to create colourful graffiti banners and artwork for display in the museum. York Army Museum is officially registered with the Big Draw, so all participants are awarded The Big Draw certificate.

Drop into our codebreaking sessions in the museum, join Mrs Taylor recruiting for WW2 codebreakers and learn to send and decipher morse code messages.
