Venue Description

Doncaster Museum tells the story of the town from the end of the last Ice Age to the present day. Among our highlights are the unique Danum Roman Shield, our nine Doncaster Gold Cups dating back to 1779, and the Edward medals awarded for rescue work at the Bentley Pit disaster of 1931. The Art Gallery displays nationally important works of art from our own collections alongside a varied programme of temporary exhibitions.


Admission to the Museum is free. The entrance to the Museum is level, but the two doors into the building must be pushed inwards. We do not yet have automatic doors. However, the reception are is always staffed, so assistance would be available should you need it. The Museum and Art Gallery is on two floors, the Museum displays are on the ground floor, and the Art Gallery is on the first floor. There is a large lift between the two floors which must be operated by a member of staff. Please ask a Visitor Assistant if you would like to use the lift. An access statement will be available soon.
