Join us for our brand new event – Pedal Power!
The whole museum will come alive with amazing inventions, contraptions and vehicles – all powered by pedal power!
From tricycles to bicycles, dentist drills to sewing machines, sheep shearing machines to penny farthings, there will be amazing things to see all around the museum. Every corner you turn you’ll find another fascinating contraption and you never know, you might just find yourself having a go at operating one!

We’re really excited about our new event here at Beamish, as Old King Coal moves to June, we’ll have great fun over this Spring weekend with all things pedal power!
