The Sensory Garden

Set in the stunning surroundings of the medieval ruins of St. Mary’s Abbey, York Museum Gardens are a great space to eplore

There is so much to see and do including a chance to see inside Yorkshire’s oldest working observatory, wander round the gardens and see the vast botanical collection, spot some of the 40 species of bird within the gardens and visit the award winning Yorkshire Museum, which showcases some of Britain’s finest archaeological treasures and many rare animals, birds and fossils, in exciting new displays.

We then returned to the art gallery and painted a postcard using watercolours whilst thinking about what we had seen, smelt, heard and touched (not tasted!).
