"Religious Museum"

This is a museum with a difference! Situated only five minutes walk from York Railway Station, this is a religious museum, which is based in the oldest active convent in the country. Recently featured on TV in a program that showed that the nuns who run it have an excellent sense of humor. The domed chapel is hidden from the outside world by a pitched roof. In your visit to the museum you will learn about the history of Christianity in the North of England and hear the story of Mary Ward who founded the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary. There are regular exhibitions held here all year round. A dolls' house is used to illustrate the 19th-century story of life in the convent, with audio tapes and videos to enhance the description.
