Wakefield Museums and Castles

Welcome to Wakefield Museums and Castles.

We are the Museums with the caiman under the floor; where Liquorice and voting collide; that celebrates sweet-filled-glass walking sticks.

We are the Castles with fascinating stories, with wide open space to play, with historic ruins to explore and inspire your imagination.

We are adventure. We are fun. We are weird and wonderful. You are invited to join in. You are invited to delve and discover.

Together we are amazing!
