Fodor's Review

In an 18th-century building, whose elegance belies its former role as a debtors' prison, this quirky museum includes a replica York street that recreates the Victorian shopping experience, notable domestic interiors, more than 100 historic patchwork quilts, a toy gallery, and Christmas cards sent during World War I. You can also visit the cell where Dick Turpin, the 18th-century highwayman and folk hero, spent the night before his execution.
