South Shields Museum & Art Gallery explores the story of South Tyneside through sensational displays, hands-on exhibits and stunning art

The museum has three main displays: Tales of South Tyneside explores the local and social history of the area during the twentieth century together with the lifetime achievement of the successful local author Catherine Cookson; Treasures allows visitors the opportunity to get closer to items of the collection not seen on display for a number of years and Changing Faces charts the history of South Tyneside from the Bronze Age to the twentieth century through the Museum's archaeological, natural and historical collections. There's also Creature Corner, home to resident reptiles and insects, the shop and a small cafe, the Victorian Pantry, serving a range of hot and cold refreshments.

The museum has regular exhibitions and a range of activities and events to suit all ages. Most of the events, like the Museum, are free of charge. Visit https://southshieldsmuseum.org.uk/ for details.
