The National Railway Museum would like to invite you to find out more and share your views about plans to transform the museum as part of the York Central redevelopment.
The museum is committed to providing access. This would be through the new Central Gallery during opening hours. We are still working on the detail of where and how access out of hours will happen and a proposed route has been put forward by the York Central Partnership. The proposed route for pedestrians and cyclists would pass through a safe and well-lit streetscape with a vibrant mix of newly created cafes, restaurants, hotels and green spaces. This area would be buzzing day and night. By creating this new route, the museum would be able to unite the site for the first time, providing level access throughout.
The new Central Gallery created in this space would provide a better welcome and facilities for museum visitors, including local people. It would also enable the museum to remain relevant into the future, plugging the current skills gap and predicted shortfall in engineering graduates, The exciting new space would facilitate the display of the latest technology and innovations from the modern industry. All of this would provide a substantial boost to the local economy.
The museum would love to hear your views to make sure that York Central works both for local residents and visitors from further afield and warmly invite you to come and have your say on these proposals. Come along and talk to colleagues, find out more and share your thoughts and ideas at an exhibition at the museum’s main entrance from 3pm to 6pm on Wednesday 25 July and 10.30am to 12 noon on Saturday 28 July 2018.
