Individual Support

It is our mission to share our collections, beautiful French architecture and landscaped park and gardens with as wide an audience as possible, but we can’t do that without the support of people like you. After a period of four months closure, our Museum building is open, to limited numbers of visitors, socially distanced and with extra safety measures in place.

Whilst we manage to keep everyone safe inside the building, we are offering Teesdale residents and the wider community the opportunity to nurture their health and wellbeing through access to open space, woodland walks, outdoor eating and engagement with art. This summer we are ‘Bringing the Museum into the Park’ through an outdoor exhibition displaying artworks created by young people and other local artists, open-air workshops and socially distanced cultural activities for all ages.

The Bowes Museum is a charity, and it is heavily dependent on visitor income and donations. With the loss of all our income from admissions, the Museum Shop and Café Bowes, for over four months, we are now in a vulnerable position and any help you can give, no matter how much, will help the Museum overcome the challenges it faces in the future. We are committed to creating a world in which creativity, art and the community in which we live are amongst the most important things in our society.

Thank you for your support and stay safe.

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.
