Workhouse Expansion Project

  • {alt}

From dining room to dormitories

Thanks to National Lottery players, visitors will soon be able to look around the Master’s house, the dormitory wings, the kitchen and the dining room, which are all located in the main block. The building stands just behind the main museum building at the Workhouse Museum and also includes the Master’s garden just in front of the Master’s wing.

Come and explore

We’re keen to share what we’re working on – so we’re opening as much as possible of the main block to the public in late July. Then, over the next year we will be delivering lots more offers, events and attractions to showcase not only this building but also what Ripon Museums have to offer.

Follow our twitter and facebook pages to keep up to date with the work we’re doing. We will also be asking you for your opinions on how we can use this magnificent building to help us create an entertaining, engaging and exciting addition to our offer.
