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!

Beamish is fantastic for a day out whatever you want to do. There's history, views, walks and all the other bits in between. Excellent value with the unlimited pass too. Each time you visit there's something new to see or do.

Beamish Museum is a place I remember quite fondly, not well, but fondly. I've been to it many times in my life, and after many years (2007 I believe?), I've come back with only a vague sense of what the place was like. The difference...More

its £19 per adult..we got some vouchers from a place called south causey inn where we went for food..them vouchers then enabled us to get a yearly pass FREE..i would imagine you could save a few pounds by pre booking.
I plan to visit sunday 30th april if i booked would tickets be available at desk on the day?
