Visitor information

Following new advice in response to the COVID 19 pandemic and in line with other cultural organisations, we have taken the difficult decision to close all of our museums and galleries and the archives from 5pm on Wednesday 18 March.

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.

Thank you for your support and understanding at this challenging time. Stay well and we look forward to welcoming you back in due course.

This exhibition examines the life and times of Dr Thomas Masterman Winterbottom.

Dr Winterbottom contributed greatly to the development of South Shields and Westoe in the late 18c and 19c, and contributed to medical and ethnographical research, especially in West Africa, which still has resonance today.
