Malton Museum is a small independent volunteer-run museum. Established in 1935, the museum was previously based in the Old Town Hall, Malton before relocating to its current home in the Subscription Rooms on Yorkersgate, Malton.
It holds a nationally important Roman collection of artefacts. In addition to objects relating to the area’s Roman past there are items belonging to more recent periods, including artefacts connected with horse racing, brewing and other aspects of local life. The range of objects includes coins, pottery, weaponry and even a jet bear.
These unique snapshots of Ryedale’s past are rotated regularly in the museum’s two exhibition rooms based in the Subscription Rooms on Yorkersgate, Malton and brought to life with a regular programme of fun and hands on activities for all visitors.
Malton Museum is an accredited museum.
