WW1 Phase 2 – York Castle Museum

We previously extended the world famous Victorian Street in June 2012. The extension included new backstreets, York businesses & thousands more goods on display. It showcased 100 years of York’s history in one place. The new 2014 exhibition promises fascinating displays & innovative new ways of learning about York’s past, and will bring the First World War to life like never before “1914 when the world changed forever”. New technology and research will be combined with York Castle’s extensive military, costume and social history collections to tell the fascinating and often moving stories of the Yorkshire people who lived and died during the war that was said to end all wars. The new exhibition is set to open on the 28th June 2014 on its hundredth anniversary.
