Preston Park visited by Museum of the Year judges

The judges' tour of the Museum of the Year finalists continues with a trip down Preston Park's Victorian street.

One of the top museums in the north east, Stockton-on-Tees's Preston Park Museum is in the running to be named Museum of the Year 2013 in the year of its diamond anniversary. Set in rich parkland alongside the River Tees, the museum has something to appeal to everyone, from expansive grounds to a recreated Victorian street complete with historical sweets and costumed 'residents'.
