Beamish Museum – Reopening on 23rd July 2020!

June 24th 2020

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 yesterday’s 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 timeslot 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 announced yesterday, 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!
