Possibly one of York's best kept secrets is this fascinating Museum situated in the medieval Monk Bar. Built in the 14th Century as part of York's famous City Walls it was originally a guard house and has been both a prison and a police house, lived in until 1914. The bar boasts a rare example of a working portcullis, last lowered in 1953. Largely original, the ancient mechanism still works and can be operated by visitors. Converted into the Richard III Museum in 1992, in honour of the King many felt had been unjustly maligned by historians. Open Mar-Oct.
