Butterfly Wall

Weddings, births, graduations, birthdays or anniversaries, each butterfly on The Butterfly Wall represents a special memory or a personal story.

The Butterfly Wall has been a part of the Great North Museum: Hancock helping visitors remember loved ones and celebrate special occasions since 2009. 2018 has seen the introduction of the Digital Butterfly Wall, a new and exciting next step to involve visitors and their stories with the Great North Museum.

Butterflies start from as little as £10 for one month. If you would like to support this important aspect of our work and include your name (or the name of someone you love) on our Butterfly Wall, please make a donation today.
