Bailiffgate Museum is a fun day out for all the family. It tells the history of Alnwick and district in colourful, interactive displays.

Highlights include a Victorian schoolroom, a nineteenth century printer's workshop, a miner's kitchen and artefacts from a ten thousand year old house, the oldest in Northumberland.

Come and raid the dressing up box: who will you become?

Look out for Finlay, the mischievous museum mouse. His ‘fascinating facts' will help you learn! And see if you can spot the secret mouse classroom.

Check out the video jukebox for films of Alnwick and district in the past.

And don't miss the shop with gifts from the area at pocket money prices.

There are always fun, family-friendly activities to try: check the website to find out what's on!
