Bailiffgate Museum

There is so much to discover at the Bailiffgate – through our displays and interactive activities, films, music and song, a history discovery area, local newspaper archives and evocative images of the past.

There are changing exhibitions in the upstairs gallery which showcase local history, arts and crafts. We have a range of books, DVDs and interesting mementoes of your visit in our small shop.

The Museum has been recognised as one of the 25 best places in the country for early years children to visit and there are plenty of dressing up clothes, hands-on activities and quirky stories to capture kid’s imaginations.

We are proud to present the stories of our local heritage and our Northumberland landscape. However we are not only historians of the past – through our Heritage at the Heart of the Community project, we are working with local communities on preserving our heritage here and now – so there will always be something new to see and experience at the Bailiffgate.

Whether you are visiting the area or live in Alnwick and District, Bailiffgate has so much to offer!
