Monkwearmouth Station Museum

Monkwearmouth Station Museum exterior

The museum is housed in an outstanding grade 2* listed 1840s station building, commissioned by the famous railway entrepreneur George Hudson, displaying many original features such as the ticket booths, fireplaces and shuttered windows.

The station has once again been brought to life through inspiring and interactive displays, telling the story of an age when Monkwearmouth was the main station for the city and the building buzzed with the excitement of the people passing through.

There's a children's gallery, gift shop and an ongoing programme of events and exhibitions.
