The Yorkshire Philosophical Society founded in December 1822 founded the Yorkshire Museum and Museum Gardens and in 1961 handed over the whole city centre site including St Mary’s Abbey ruins and the Hospiteum to local government for the benefit of the citizens of York.
The story of the Society is a fascinating insight into the life of York, Yorkshire and further afield and as a result the Society is publishing “From Cave to Cosmos: a history of the Yorkshire Philosophical Society” by Sarah Sheils as part of the bicentenary celebrations.
