National Railway Museum’s Central Hall gains planning permission

Plans have been approved for the National Railway Museum’s new building called Central Hall, which will transform this major attraction and herald the start of delivering the York Central development. Central Hall will be a new welcome space and gallery located between the museum’s Great Hall and Station Hall. It will connect the existing museum buildings and is a cornerstone of the museum’s masterplan — the museum’s journey to transform its offer and become the world’s railway museum.
