27 May to 13 June. We will be preparing the galleries for our next exhibition, so there will be some disruption to what you can see on the ground floor at this time.

Family History research visits
Our Researcher works on Tuesdays and Fridays so please bear that in mind when visiting the museum or calling with a family history research query. It’s best to make an appointment – call 01748 826561 to book a slot.
Independent family history research
We can help you find out more about a Green Howard relative by making our reference books and records available to you. If you would like to visit the museum to do this, please get in touch with us first to ensure we are able to give you as much time and information as you need so that you can make the most of your research time at the museum.
Group visits and guided tours
Are you a member of a group who would like to visit the museum? We can work with you to make your visit one to remember. We can provide group sessions related to a topic you are particularly interested in and museum tours with one of our knowledgeable guides. A range of refreshment options are also available to complement your group visit, from morning coffee to light lunches and afternoon tea.
Events and celebrations
The museum provides a unique setting for your event or celebration. Surround yourself with sumptuous silver, art and history by hiring The Normanby Room.
School visits take place as part of our education programme.
The museum is part of Richmond’s Town Ticket scheme, which runs between April and October, giving reduced entry to Richmond’s four main attractions, as well as discounts on eating out in the town.
There’s lots to do in Richmond; a historic Georgian market town overlooked by an imposing Norman castle. As well as the shops, pubs, cafes and scenic riverside walks, you can also visit The Station, The Georgian Theatre Experience and The Richmondshire Museum. The town is the cultural capital of The Yorkshire Dales!
