See beyond…

If you are bringing a group of at least six people to the museum, we can offer a unique opportunity to get close to some precious objects from the museum collection, and see behind the scenes. Our Collections team will personally curate the items for you to interact with during their visit, giving participants a truly unique and unforgettable experience.

Stores Tours are ideal for groups of 6 to 8 people, but don’t worry if there are more of you. We’ll manage your visit to ensure you get time to experience what it’s like to be working with our historic objects every day.

Exclusive Access stores tours don’t stop with our magnificent collection. Your visit can also include refreshments – choose from tea, coffee and cake, a buffet lunch or a full Yorkshire afternoon tea in our splendid Normanby Room, full of Mousey Thompson furniture, art and glistening silver.

There will also be time to view the museum galleries independently; absorbing the fascinating 300 year story of this illustrious regiment as well as seeing our current special exhibition.
