"Our family visited the museum whilst on holiday in Weardale, we found it fascinating! The volunteers demonstrated a fantastic level of knowledge and couldn't be more helpful. We will certainly be revisiting next time we're passing through."
"My wife and I discovered the place entirely by accident and were so glad we did! We spent 2 hours looking around the exhibits and talking with museum staff. The neighbouring chapel is also worth a visit."
"Weardale Museum is a fantastic place, one of those hidden, rare gems that you must visit to truly appreciate. The immensely knowledgable staff really brought the story behind each exhibit to life. It is well worth a visit"
