Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums and Newcastle University

Museums are an important part of communities, helping us to understand and share our nation's story, as well as promoting culture and tourism for the local area. Thanks to a unique partnership involving 5 organisations, a 26m refurbishment project has transformed The Great North Museum into one of the North East's most visited museums, attracting 3/4 million visitors in the first 9 months.
