South Shields Museum and Art Gallery
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
For the last 150 years, South Shields Museum & Art Gallery has been at the heart of the community, bringing world-class exhibitions and events to the region.
Celebrating South Tyneside's rich heritage, the museum brings to life stories from the past through its mix of interactives, collections and events. Discover the place that brought about the invention of the lifeboat and is the birthplace of novelist Catherine Cookson.
