Overview

Experience amazing sights, sounds, smells and delicious tastes as the past comes to life. Beamish is unique - our objects aren't locked away in glass cases, this is hands-on history! Step into the past and explore our 350 acre site, as Beamish tells the story of the people of North East England in the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s. Taste traditional food from a coal-fired range, hop on board a tram or steam train, play schoolyard games together and pop into the Co-op shops. Come back time and time again with your Beamish Unlimited Pass, which allows 12 months free entry to the museum from your visit - including all day time special events!

Beautiful place, recreating life as it used to be more than 100 years ago. You get a glimpse of life in a mining town in the 1800s, walk into the mine and imagine how people were working there (hard to imagine, I know), sit down...More

Fantastic place. There was so much to see. Taking us back in time. Memories of our childhoods. Can't wait to see the 1950's village being build now.
