Covid-19 update

Following the announcement by the Health Secretary and local authorities that the North East will have tighter restrictions to control the spread of Coronavirus from 18 September, we would like to clarify that South Shields Museum & Art Gallery will remain open with social distancing measures in place to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff.

To comply with these new restrictions, we ask that you only book tickets / visit our venues as an individual household (or support bubble) of up to six people.
