Join The Bowes Museum for a Virtual Family Fun Day

Registration extended until Monday 5 April.
Discover the magical love story that belongs to our founders John and Joséphine Bowes and make crafts inspired by it in this Virtual Family Fun Day. Join Julia, from our education team, live from different locations around the Museum as she guides you through creating your own theatre complete with characters, a Bernadine dog and a very special golden mouse.
Register by 9pm on the 5 April to receive a craft kit with almost everything you need to take part on the day. All you need to supply are colouring pens or pencils, scissors and a glue stick. Sessions will last around 20 minutes and you’ll be able to access them via a unique link that will be sent to you via email.


No tickets are available at this moment in time.

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!
