Attraction Information:
At the North of England Open Air Museum, the past comes to life. Beamish is unique. We're no ordinary museum, but a living, working experience of life as it was in the Great North in the early 1800s and 1900s.

Beamish, Britain's favourite open air museum, set in over 300 acres of beautiful countryside, vividly recreates life in the North of England in the early 1800s and 1900s.

Winner of both the British Museum of the Year and European Museum of the Year Awards, it demonstrates the recent history of the region in a "living" way and provides entertainment and education for visitors of all ages and interests.

People from the past welcome visitors and interpret how the people of the North of England lived and worked. Step on board our trams and we'll transport you into the past.

Our real ice rink is open every weekend and school holidays from late November until the 21st February.
