Guided Tour of The Imaginery Museum of The North FREE

Every Saturday morning, up to and including 8th September, there will be a guided tour of our Imaginery Museum.

The Museum includes gems from our collection, treasures on loan from Berwick Museum and Art Gallery, objects and creatures made by young people from Newcastle Bridges School and miscellaneous objects donated to the museum.

Additionally you will see objects that we imagine have been left behind by lecturers over the years.

The guided tour provides an explanation of the items. The stories we are telling in The Museum may be true, but some might be pure imagination. You decide!

Every week a layer will be removed from a mysterious parcel that’s been sent to the Librarian.

Tours are FREE but places are limited so please book.
Alternatively, you can follow a trail around the Library to discover the objects.
