SOLD! to shut up shop soon

You've just under a month to visit the SOLD! exhibition at The Bowes Museum.

The exhibition charts the rise of antiques dealers over the last 200 years, looking at their relationship with Museums with the story told through more than 30 iconic objects.

We have some exciting and varied events planned in the final weeks of the exhibition.

Aliens invade The Bowes Museum

Aliens will be descending on The Bowes Museum as part of our latest exhibition.

The Alien Beach Party has been created by the Museum's GeTINvolved group and features some weird and wonderful creatures, inspired by our collection and books by Nick Sharratt.

Visitors to the exhibition can also enter a writing competition, which will be open until 16 June, with the winners being announced on 20 July when they'll be presented with their prizes by Nick Sharratt himself.
