Free. Huge modern exhibition, very professionally laid out, to tell the story of Yorkshire from the beginning of time. There are enough dinosaurs and Anglo Saxon huts keep the kids happy, enough of everything else to look after the adults. Don't miss it.

In the museum quarter alongside street life museum and wilberforce museum and like the others it's free donations are welcomed. Tour through history starting in the ice age. Impressive layout and artefacts throughout the eras. Worth a visit.

Well laid out museum. Exhibits made interesting by placing in settings, such as a family in a cave. Loved the woolly mammoth! Free entry and a good little shop

Yes, most of it would be accessible in a wheelchair I would think.
