‪Don't miss out!‬
אוק׳ 2021
‪Don't be fooled by the exterior of this building, it is like a tardis, it holds so many interesting displays of Pickering's past and rural living, there is something for all ages and interests. It would benefit from having a few pictures outside to show people what they are missing. Well worth the entrance fee and allow a few hours.‬

‪An Excellent Small Museum‬
זוגות • ספט׳ 2021
‪Visited last week whilst on a coach trip. We were allowed some time in Pickering and noticed a sign to the Museum and arrived there just as it was opening. The Museum is well laid out and has a massive amount of exhibits to see. They are fortunate to have a lot to display in terms of shops and trades of the days gone by and this makes it even more interesting. Reading the history of the Museum, the issues and struggles that they have overcome has been a great achievement. This is a must see venue if you are visiting Pickering and are interested in Museums and life in a rural community.‬

‪Fantastic museum dedicated to Pickering and Rural Yorkshire‬
חברים • ספט׳ 2021
‪My Dad and I used a rainy morning to visit the Beck Isle Museum and were rewarded with a trip into Pickering's past.

Whilst the building my appear small for a museum, it packs a lot of content within including exhibits on local photographer Sydney Smith whose photographs captured slices of life for the people of Pickering and the surrounding area, exhibits showing artifacts reflecting the rural life of Pickering's inhabitants - such as dairy making equipment and household appliances, farming equipment, a blacksmith's forge and a couple of mock ups of shops - such as a gentleman's tailors, a sweet shop.... and a pub.

It took my Dad and I roughly an hour and a half to make our way round the Beck Isle Museum, the admission price of £6 for my Dad and £7 for myself was fantastic value for money, especially as if you apply Gift Aid (as long as you're a UK taxpayer) you can gain entry for twelve months. In addition to that, we took advantage of the free parking.

If you're interested in rural history, the Beck Isle Museum is a nice museum to spend a morning at.‬

‪A good museum ruined!‬
אוג׳ 2021
‪What has happened to this once lovely and informative little museum??? I have visited in the past few years and thoroughly enjoyed the experience of looking around the different exhibits and rooms. On a recent visit, all this has changed and not for the better neither!! Why are so many exhibits, previously on display now either behind screens, or even no longer there? What happened to the print room and ts old printing press?? What has happened to the lovely quilt, embroidered with the names of the many volunteers? Where is the Book of Honour to the Pickering war dead? Why does the I-pad now have a rather tacky visitor survey, what happened to the Book of Honour, it's certainly very hard to find on there!! Whoever is responsible for this shambles has evidently pressed the self destruct button, and is doing all they can to bring about the demise of this important, local attraction. My advice to anybody now thinking of visiting it is to spend your money elsewhere, and give this place a very wide berth!!‬

We are very sorry that you did not see some of your favourite items on display during your visit in August. The museum remained closed throughout 2020 due to the restrictions imposed by Covid 19. In order to open in 2021, the Trustees took the decision to improve areas such as the reception and shop, this meant we had to move other exhibitions around to accommodate the change. As I'm sure you will appreciate, museums have lots of objects in store and it is always good to refresh displays with new objects and give other exhibits a rest for conservation reasons. If there are any items you particularly wish to see you are very welcome to book an appointment to view them. You will find the contact email on our website www.beckIslemuseum .org.uk Best Wishes Beck Isle Museum

‪An amazing find so handy in the town of Pickering.
Looking from the outside at this property it was amazing to see all the exhibits of years gone by come to life not only inside but outside.
We loved every minute ‬
