Owner description: 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!

Its my own fault, have been twice in six months, first visit yes all very interesting, colliery area looks to the untrained eye like a scrap yard. Went to the tea rooms in the town area again this time, good value and local dishes. It's all just a little bit cold, exposed and unwelcoming. Staff were all very nice and knowledgable. My son who is 8 and usually very interested in all things historical, was feigning interest as we'd made a special trip down for him to see it, he got more out of Durham cathedral.

We spent 4 hours walking round Beamish and had a great day. This is a full day out, 4 hours is not long enough, we ran out of time. We will go back to see the parts we didn't see and spend more time in the bits we rushed through at the end
