Fodor's Review

The ecological and archaeological history of the county is the focus of this museum in an early 19th-century Greek Revival–style building with massive Doric columns. Themed galleries focus mostly on Roman, Anglian, Viking, and medieval periods, with nearly 1 million objects, including the 15th-century Middleham Jewel, a pendant gleaming with a large sapphire; a Paleolithic hand axe; and an extremely rare Copperplate Helmet, a 1,200-year-old Viking artifact.
