South Shields Museum & Art Gallery


"The museum is spread over two floors telling the story of the borough's social, industrial and maritime history from 4,000 years ago to the present day through a range of displays, exhibitions and nationally significant works of art." The museum is run by Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums on behalf of South Tyneside Council. The museum building is Grade 2 Listed and was originally built in 1860 for the South Shields Literary, Mechanical and Scientific Institution. In 1873 the building became the town’s first free Public Library. It first opened as a museum in 1876.
