We’re excited to announce that Beamish will be reopening its doors on 23rd July 2020!  We’ve missed you all and can’t wait to welcome you back to the museum.

The safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our top priority as always and we’re working through the details of the Government announcement, and will be sharing more information soon about visiting Beamish.

To keep everyone safe, we’re introducing additional health and hygiene measures across our 350-acre open air museum site.  Entry will need to be by pre-booked time slot for all visitors, including Friends of Beamish members and Unlimited Pass holders.  In early July, we’ll be announcing more details of how to book tickets and information about pass and membership enquiries.  We have a huge museum site so it will take a little while to work through and implement the Government COVID-19 updates earlier this week, and we’ll be opening individual exhibits based on COVID-19 safety guidance. We’ll keep you updated as we complete our preparations for reopening.

In the meantime, we just want to say a massive, heartfelt thank you to everyone for your support and understanding – it really means a lot to us, and we just can’t wait to see you again soon!

DBN Members will be playing their part in helping Beamish Museum to reopen

We have really missed being able to visit Beamish Museum over the past few weeks so we were especially thrilled when they asked DBN members to take part in a test day on Monday 20th July.  It's now fully-booked and we'd like to give a huge thank you to everyone who has signed up to attend.

We'll send out joining instructions as soon as they come through and look forward to seeing people in person again after all these months.

Fingers crossed for the good weather to continue!

Exciting news!  We have launched an online shop, so you can now bring a bit of Beamish into your home!

From sweet shop treats and Museum Shop favourites to print shop creations and our award-winning chemist’s cold creams, we have a range of products inspired by your favourite exhibits and the museum collections.  Many of our items have been made at Beamish or by local suppliers and are exclusive to the museum – they also make great gifts!
