Located in Skipton Town Hall, Craven Museum & Gallery has impressive displays of social history, archaeology, costume and art.

The exhibition gallery on the ground floor shows a changing programme of exhibitions related to heritage and the arts.

Visitors can discover more about the area’s past by exploring the small but varied collections on display.

Entrance to the Museum & Gallery is free and there are dozens of activities for children, such as dressing up as cave people and Victorian servants, digging in the archaeology pit, grinding corn into flour on the quern and quizzes, puzzles and colouring.

The museum’s most recent and exciting addition to the permanent display is a rare Shakespeare First Folio. Craven Museum is one of only four venues in the world to have a First Folio on permanent display, the others are in London, Stratford upon Avon and Washington DC.
