Easter Fun with The Bowes Museum

Join our Easter Craft Along sessions online!

Although The Bowes Museum is closed, we didn't want people to miss out on the fun activities we had planned over the Easter holidays, so our education officer Julia Dunn has recorded the sessions she was going to run and they'll be available for everyone to join in with online.

There's a list of everything you'll need to take part with them, ranging from paper and pens to scissors, glue and toilet rolls, so you can check you're ready to go before they begin.

All the sessions will be available on the Museum's Youtube channel and linked on our social media accounts.

Sorry something went wrong, please try again.

The Bowes Museum is closed!


All of us at The Bowes Museum are really sad to announce that we have had to close until Wednesday 2 December in line with new national restrictions.

As a result, we have been forced to cancel events that were due to take place during this time. If you have a ticket for an event or entry to the Museum before this date, you will be contacted to arrange a refund or to make an alternative booking. All Christmas activities including the Christmas Market and Santa’s Grotto are expected to go ahead as planned.

Happily, we are still able to welcome walkers and cyclists to the Park and Gardens as usual, including the Playground area, and cars will be admitted between 10.00 and 4.00 daily.

We have so loved welcoming people into the building again, safely enjoying our displays, eating in Café Bowes and browsing in our shop, so please in the meantime keep safe and we hope to see you back again soon.
