The Yorkshire Museum

A restoration of the architectural integrity of a major early-nineteenth-century building has created an ideal environment for a display of major exhibits with clarity and imagination. With a remarkably small budget and the dedication of the staff, the museum has brought together two achievements, each of which would have been exemplary on their own. One of Britain’s most important neo-classical interiors has been restored and its historic fittings revealed and this has been used as an inspiration and backdrop for an interactive and informative display of an internationally significant collection.
