Coronavirus

Following advice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic we took the decision to close the Great North Museum: Hancock on Wednesday 18 March until 1 May 2020. We will be reviewing the situation and updating if anything changes.

We're planning and creating digital experiences and resources so that you can still enjoy our wonderful collections from home.  We will add these to our website and social media. Please sign up to our emails at mustseemuseums.org.uk and check our social media so we can keep you up to date.

Thank you for your support and understanding at this challenging time. Stay well and we look forward to welcoming you back in due course.

Unfortunately, we are unable to process any online shop orders until the museums reopen.
