The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers remains, as always, our number one priority. The museum is expected to be closed until at least 1st May but we will be continuing to monitor all Government advice and will keep this under review.

Join us as visiting vehicles will converge on Beamish Museum for the incredibly popular four-day Great North Steam Fair.
See an amazing array of pre-1930 steam and motor transport – from locomotives, traction engines and steam rollers to fire engines, cars and motorbikes – in action across the museum.
The Great North Steam Fair is the first event of our Great North Festival of Transport which also includes Horses at Work.
