The smallest museum in the world can be found in Yorkshire

We can find a museum for the Guinness Book of Records in Yorkshire. In Warley Town, an old village in the Calder Valley, close to Halifax, West Yorkshire. The old BT telephone box opened up as Warley Museum in 2016. Situated in the centre of Warley Town, next to the Maypole Inn, the exhibits are changed every few months and residents loan objects and photos.

And they were right, as the Warley Gallery has become a unique tourist attraction globally, earning the distinction of the smallest museum in the world. Now closed for the pandemics, it always followed social distancing rules; in fact, only one visitor at the time can enter the museum.

On the windows of the red telephone box, there are engravings and old photographs, while inside, a selection of personal objects tells the story of the village.
Many old phone boxes have been repurposed as mini-libraries or places where to keep defibrillators.
