South Shields Museum and Art Gallery

South Shields Museum and Art Gallery is a small, friendly museum with a fascinating collection of objects and artworks relating to the local area. Collections mainly relate to the natural, social, industrial and maritime history of South Tyneside and include collections of art portraying the area and work by local artists. There is also a varied temporary exhibition programme that changes regularly. The museum has Arts Award Advisers trained from Discover to Silver levels, all of whom can facilitate projects using exhibitions, workshops, tours and talks for all ages and abilities, including those with special educational needs and disabilities.
