Following advice in response to the COVID 19 pandemic we took the decision to close Arbeia on Wednesday 18 March until 1 May 2020. We will be reviewing the situation and updating if anything changes.
We're planning and creating digital experiences and resources so that you can still enjoy our wonderful collections from home. We will add these to our website and social media. Please sign up to our emails at mustseemuseums.org.uk and check our social media so we can keep you up to date.
Thank you for your support and understanding at this challenging time. Stay well and we look forward to welcoming you back in due course.
Unfortunately, we are unable to process any online shop orders until the museums reopen.
Let us match your interests to our exhibitions and events and provide you with special offers for Arbeia and 8 more museums and galleries in Tyneside.
This is provisionally until 1 May 2020 but we will be reviewing the situation and updating if anything changes. Please sign up to our emails at mustseemuseums.org.uk and check our social media channels and website so we can keep you up to date with what’s going on.
