Looking to the future, we have a bold and ambitious plan to invest £50 million to completely transform the museum. This investment will
bring the epic story of railways past, present and future alive and open up our world-class collection for even more people to enjoy.
While we are the custodians of the past, we need to be fit for the future.
Our 2025 vision is to:
- Reach more than 1 million visitors a year
- Invest £5 million in an interactive ‘Wonderlab’ to bring the principles of science and engineering to life
- Create a spectacular new gallery to showcase the collection
This vision will see the museum at the cultural heart of the proposed York Central scheme, an £800m project of huge ambition which will
transform a forgotten area of the city into vibrant neighbourhoods, cultural spaces and a high-quality commercial quarter. York Central is
an exciting development scheme with enormous potential to deliver economic growth, jobs and sustainable housing for the city.
We aspire to complete this transformation by 2025—our 50th anniversary.
We are currently putting together the team to help deliver our vision and are looking to recruit the following roles.
