York Castle Museum

Interesting
The former Debtors' Prison and Female Prison now house one of the city's museums. Kirkgate is the exact reproduction of a Victorian street, with its hackney cabs, houses, shops... down to the soundscape and lighting. The Toys Stories section presents toys from the Victorian era to the present. Finally, the erstwhile cells at basement level and visual and sound projections bring to life the former inmates.
