Malton Museum is Ryedale's major archaeological museum, located in the heart of Malton's market place and housed in an 18th Century butter market.

The Museum houses an interesting array of Roman finds, from manicure sets to wall plaster paintings. Most of these have been discovered locally, the most recent find being a burial urn discovered by a local workman installing a new street light on a housing estate in nearby Norton.
