The Museum of York County, which opened in the year 1950, was originally meant to lure young kids into knowing more about their rich culture and heritage. But gradually the museum expanded and has now become a learning ground for both kids and adults. Apart from the arts and science exhibits, there are also presentations on the natural and cultural history, African artifacts displays and much more. Weekends are even more fun as the Settlemyre Planetarium will take you into the magic world of stars and the cosmos. The museum also holds summer camps and private birthday party celebrations for children.
