The Entrance Pavilion, National Railway Museum, York

The National Railway Museum is at present served by two entrances which creates issues of orientation and way-finding for visitors in addition to being inefficient from a management and staffing point of view. These aspects together with the aspiration to introduce a more narrative led approach to the collection has led to the decision to close one entrance and receive all museum visitors through the present City Entrance. As a separate standalone project Pringle Richards Sharratt were appointed in 2010 to extend the City Entrance to provide increased capacity, new visitor reception facilities and a new museum shop for completion in 2011.
