Micklegate Priory Revealed

2010 saw the addition of 'Micklegate Priory Revealed' to the existing 'Monks of Micklegate' exhibition. This new installation took the form of an interactive touchscreen that allows the visitor to experience the 15th-century Micklegate Priory, digitally reconstructed in a detailed 3D visualisation.

12 areas of the priory can be investigated, including the cloister, the workshops, the gardens and the fishponds. Each area provides several information points, which provide interesting details on how the priory functioned and how its inhabitants lived.

A second phase of the project, which explores the interiors of the monastic buildings and detail further the lives of the monks, was completed in 2012.
