Beck Isle Museum Prepares To Reopen

by Editorial Team

Beck Isle Museum is situated in the centre of Pickering on the picturesque beck side. Inside the handsome Georgian building are reconstructed shops and businesses which would have typically been found in a rural market town in times gone by. In the outside courtyard, a local printer’s shop and a blacksmith’s forge will have regular demonstrations.

The hand forged items made by the blacksmith are available to purchase in our newly refurbished and extended shop. The courtyard also houses a display of agricultural implements and a gallery dedicated to the Rosedale iron working.
Whilst we have been closed, we have taken the opportunity to make big changes to our reception area and shop. When we reopen, we look forward to seeing local people in our shop to browse the extensive range of new products stocked, including items made by local crafts people (lots of gift ideas and greetings cards). You will be able to visit the shop without paying for entrance to the museum.

To enable us to take the museum forward we are looking for volunteers and trustees, with a variety of skills, to join us in our journey.

If you would like to know more about becoming a volunteer or trustee please email

When we reopen on the 19th of May we look forward to seeing you; please keep looking at our website for updates on ticketing arrangements and opening times. The museum is fully accredited by Arts Council England and a registered charity.
