Living History at Murton Park

In addition to our award winning living history education days (see Services for Schools for further details) the site hosts a number of visiting specialist re-enactment groups throughout the season.

Ranging from the pre-historic era to the second world war via the days of the Vikings and the wild west a number of different groups take over parts of the site to stage their exhibits and events. (See Our Community for details of some of the other groups associated with Murton Park).

Why not time your visit to the museum to coincide with one of these events and get a unique peek into the past? It is always best to check in advance to see what is happening on site and keep an eye on our website for forthcoming events. (See What’s On for details of our events programme).

Please note: The re-enactment groups that use our site operate as independent charities, rely on their volunteer members and appear at several venues throughout the season. As such late changes to schedules and activities can occur.  If you are interested in seeing any particular group or historical period in action it is essential that you check in advance of your visit to avoid disappointment. Murton Park and The Yorkshire Museum of Farming cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular group and can accept no liability on behalf of groups using the site. 

If you represent a re-enactment group that would like to organise an event at Murton Park, please read our general site rules here.
