The Living Museum of the North
Today we travel straight to the world-famous open-air museum – Beamish – telling the story of life in North East England during the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s. Explore the 1900s town and see how families lived and worked in the years leading up to the First World War. See what’s cooking in the pit cottages, practice your handwriting in the school and visit the chapel. Don’t forget to say hello to the pit ponies in their stables. Step ‘behind the scenes’ into the Open Store at the regional resource centre and see fascinating objects in the collections. Enjoy tasty treats, from homemade hot meals to delicious snacks, cakes and drinks. Take home a unique reminder of your visit, shop Edwardian-style in The Town or take a look in the museum shop at the entrance. And much, much more!
