The museum is in a Grade 1 listed building, built centuries ago as a residence but which over the years had declined into various uses. It has been lovingly restored by local volunteers who formed a charity.
Quite often following restoration the problem is then what to do with the building.
Here it has been turned into a museum of local life. The displays are excellent with a variety of wall mounted as well as others. Plenty of information on local life and world war one.
Definitely worth a visit when in Settle.
