Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery was opened in 1964 as a purpose-built Museum to display important collections of natural history, archaeology, local history, fine and decorative art. There is also a large and varied temporary exhibition programme throughout the year, as well as special activities for all ages.
The Museum shop stocks a range of gifts including postcards, souvenirs, framed prints, King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry material and books. Museum staff also offer an Enquiry Service to the public - objects can be brought in for identification but no valuations can be given.
There is full access to the museum for the disabled, and inside there is a lift providing access to the upper galleries. Free car park for visitors with reserved disabled parking.
Situated in the same building as Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery,
in its own ground floor extension, The Regimental Museum of the
King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry reflects the history of this
famous local Regiment. On display is one of the most
extensive medal collections exhibited in any museum in this
country. Tours and talks can be arranged for groups during
normal museum opening times.
