Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery


Chequer Road,


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.
