Scream if you want to go faster!
Bump on the bumper cars, re-live a by gone era on the gallopers or take your breath away on the speedway - there is a ride for everyone at The Scarborough Fair Collection.
We need you!
The museums would be unable to operate without our fantastic team of volunteers. They fix things, cook things, clean things, operate things and play things - if you would like to do it too please get in touch.
A school trip to remember
Schools are particularly welcome in the museum where you will find out how show men used to live, learn how a pipe organ works, experience what a disco was like 100 years ago and ride on the 'Golden Galloping Horses'. Contact us to book a trip or arrange a guided tour.
