Really interesting small museum

Beth H, Cambridge, United Kingdom
Dropped in to the Bapgpipe museum amd leartn lots I never knew about Northumberland pipes and scottish bagpipes. Its only a small museum, and is free and asked for donations. It is above the tourist information shop which was well stocked and we spent a happy hour there.

Nice little museum ruined by tech. failure

europtraveller, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
A fascinating if very small museum, of interest to anyone interested in music or in this part of the country. However, its attractiveness is massively reduced now as none of the audio equipment works - recordings, headphones, demonstrations etc etc, and we were told this was unlikely to be fixed any time soon.

Really Quirky

Philip B, Morpeth, United Kingdom
By the Bridge in ever popular Morpeth it is somewhere everyone should visit if in Morpeth. The subject matter may seem strange in England for a museum, but it is so interesting . treat yourself and visit. Good carparking over the mini roundabout to the left and behind the Sanderson Centre. Don't forget to go to one of the many shops or the taxi kiosk to purchase your Northumberland car parking disc for £1 which then allows you to access many car parks in Northumberland for free if participating in the scheme. full details at each venue or via NorthumberlandCC on their website


June G,
My daughter and I visited here as new residents to the area. I was a little sceptical about wether I would really find the content engaging but I was totally wrong. The museum is very well laid out and very informative, as the saying goes, 'you learn something new everyday'! I will certainly take any of my visitors to the Museum. Recommended for all age groups.

Unique collection

On a visit to Morpeth we popped in to this unique museum. There is something here of interest to anyone with an interest in music. The building in which it is housed is also a Tourist Information office and Shop which held some nice gifts with a local theme.
