The open air museum offers a living, working experience of life in the region in the Edwardian era, and has something for all ages. Staff in period dress welcome visitors and demonstrate life in period homes and workplaces including the popular Beamish sweet factory and traditional Co-op Shops. You can buy sweets at the Jubilee Confectionery, visit two farms, ride a tram, go down a real drift mine, see a newspaper being printed, or enjoy a drink in the Sun Inn. Check website for varying open hours.
