Something for everyone at Bailiffgate
There is plenty for all ages to see and do at Bailiffgate. Two floors of permanent exhibits illustrate the fascinating 10,000 year history of Alnwick and District. In addition there is a third Gallery floor. The following Exhibitions and Events will take place there during the year. You can click on the button below each picture to see more details.
Entry to the main Gallery exhibition and any other pop-up exhibitions is always free with museum entry. You do not need to reserve a place at any of these. If you become a museum Friend, then you and your family can also come in free for a whole year. See Details,
Talks, Meetings and other Events may be free, or involve a small charge if they generate extra costs for the museum. Generally these take place outside of normal opening hours but details will always be given. It is always helpful to book for events so we can arrange catering etc. If the event is charged for it is always recommended that you book in advance. Please contact us if you have any queries.
Children always love searching for our museum mice. Now every child under 12 will receive a free "Mouse Hunter" pack when they arrive. This includes a pencil, coloured pencils, pictures to colour, stickers, a mouse story sheet and a mouse hunting map. See our blog of their birth.
Bailiffgate closes for our winter maintenance at 3pm on Sunday 13th December and opens again on Tuesday 5th January 2021. Don't forget, however, that there is always lots to look at on our Bailiffgate Collections website
