Opening times

Find out when the Great North Museum: Hancock is open

We reopen on Monday 17 May

We are happy to tell you that we reopen on Monday 17 May.

Our opening hours have changed slightly so that we can keep visitors safe by cleaning throughout the day:

  • Monday - Friday: 10am - 5pm* (closed 12-12.30pm and 2.30-3pm for cleaning)
  • Saturday: 10am - 4pm* (closed 1-1.30pm for cleaning)
  • Sunday: 11am - 4pm* (closed 1-1.30pm for cleaning)

We are admitting fewer people into the Museum and operating time slots so we can provide enough space for social distancing. This means we would like you to book your visit in advance. If you don't book, you may have to queue outside the Museum until we can admit you safely.

We want to make your visit as safe and enjoyable as possible. This means there will be some changes to the way you visit. Click here to plan your trip.

Donate today to help us ensure art, culture and heritage continue to make a positive impact in our region.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you back.
