Virtual Tours

Take a virtual tour of our Ice Age to Iron Age Gallery or go behind the scenes for a peek into our Biology and Ethnography stores.

Go behind the scenes...

The team at the Great North Museum can't wait to welcome you all back. Until then, visit us virtually and have a look around!

Exploring the world through amazing things can be inspirational for children and young people. Please support our work by texting GNM 3 to give £3, GNM  5 to give £5 or GNM 10 to give £10 to 70085. Texts cost your donation plus one standard message rate. 

Your support during our closure has been fantastic. Thank you.
