A bijou museum of local history. It's run by enthusiastic and friendly volunteers. You will spot something from your childhood as well as stone age arrow heads and, if you look closely, some human ear bones.

Really beautiful little museum telling the history of the area. Full of artifacts and items that have been donated by locals. Best part by far were the fabulous volunteers, who were so knowledgeable and friendly. Well worth a visit, and definitely worth a donation when...More

Definitely worth a visit if in Grassington. Funded by donations and run by volunteers, who are very friendly, and willing to chat about exhibits.

A museum that exists thanks to the commitment of the local community. Surprisingly a part of the region and nation's industrial history - worth a visit
