A warm welcome to our education page where you can find details of our school offer. During these difficult times, we have to adjust our learning programme to ensure that we do not put our visitors and workforce at risk. The website is currently being updated with new resources and online videos linked to our most popular workshops.

We are excited to announce that the Picture This Project is back for a fourth year and will feature Clara, our Indian Rhinoceros marble statue. Schools are invited to take part and submit artwork, stories or poems for an exhibition held in Spring 2021.

We are also thrilled to offer our new Story Sack Lending Scheme. This is a free service and enables us to reach out to you and share our collections. Please contact education@thebowesmuseum.org.uk for further details or our workshops, Picture This Project and Story Sack Service.

The Bowes Museum is looking forward to welcoming you on the 17 May


Staff have been busy behind the Museum’s closed doors getting everything ready to welcome visitors back safely.

Café Bowes has undergone a refurbishment and has a new menu waiting to be sampled, the Museum has been deep cleaned, new signage is in place reminding you to adhere to social distancing, hand sanitisation stations have been refilled, the shop has been restocked and staff are being trained ready to greet you back in a safe and timely manner.

North Country Quilts: In Celebration of New Acquisitions is now hanging in the main exhibition gallery ready to wow visitors through to January 2022 and, due to social distancing measures, entry to the display will be by a separate timed exhibition entrance ticket that needs to be booked, at no extra cost, before visiting. Song has also been reinstated in the Music Room so people can enjoy the sound of the instruments. A varied programme of activity is being planned throughout May and June which we hope you will participate in.

Entry to the Museum will be by timed slots and tickets will have to be pre-booked online here or by calling 01833 690606. The Museum will be open from 10.00 to 5.00 daily. Masks will need to be worn throughout the Museum, shop and café, except when eating or where exemptions apply.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
