Beamish Museum  Beamish, the Living Museum of the North. This is our little slice of authentic vintage on Instagram!

Hello all, Patrick here!
It was a bit on the rainy side today but I still got out to take some pictures!

It’s Teen Twitter Takeover day!
This is Patrick, he will be taking over all of our social media channels today 😀 Patrick has volunteered at the Cog Railway at museum for 7 years, since he was 8. He is currently studying Media and Computer Science at school so also has an interest in the Digital Communications here at Beamish. Over to you Patrick!

Teen Twitter Takeover Day is a day started by Kids in Museums which allows teenagers across the UK to make their voices heard by taking control of museum social media feeds. #takeoverday @kidsinmuseums

Not a bad start to a #TuesdayMorning... a new arrival for our Transport team! Say hello to steam loco Peckett No.2000 which will be joining our Rowley Station fleet for an extended stay. #steamloco #train #transport #railway

Don't worry if you missed the Ferguson tractor rally this weekend - they'll be back as part of our Great North Festival of Agriculture in September!

How fabulous are the Green Ginger Garland dancers! You can catch their next performances in the Silver Band Hall at 1.45pm and 2.45pm. **Please note that Bearpark and Esh Colliery Band will be playing at 2pm in the Masonic Hall instead of the bandstand due to the rain!**

This weekend, we have a fascinating Ferguson Tractor Club display of pre-1960. They will be based on the grassed area next to the bull pen at our 1940s Farm, as well as travelling around the museum throughout the day!

We've just enjoyed a wonderful performance by Whitley Women. They will be performing again in The Pit Village at 2pm today #votesforwomen #womenempowerment #choir #singing #beamishmuseum
