For those who have never been to this excellent museum this is a chance to re live the period when mining was King in Northumberland. Charting the history from the early 1900's to the days of the miners strike There are great interactive exhibits which give an insight into how hard the conditions were in this days. For more info please see the museum Facebook page and Northumberland Museums web site.
This is an informal event so no pre planned activities at the museum but, depending on numbers, we may see if we can avail ourselves of one of the guides on the day which might be useful. Museums like this are a great for when the the weather is a bit inclement so don't be put off by a bit of wind and the odd shower. The car park is tarmac so your BM won't get muddy and as most of the museum is under cover, we shouldn't get too wet. Apart from the colliery buildings themselves it is nice and warm and there is a good cafe. The Museum opens at 10am and closes at 4pm It is not very big so if you are late then you'll see us about somewhere. Entry is £6 per adult for a 12 month pass.
PS if the weather is bad we'll go straight to the café and have a coffee until 10:30 so meet there after entry
