Monkwearmouth Station Museum

North Bridge Street, Sunderland, Tyne & Wear, SR5 1AP

Anyone with a passing interest in transport or a child that loves trains will find plenty to entertain them at the Monkwearmouth Station Museum in Sunderland. This free museum, based within a Victorian station, focuses on the origins of railways and general transport in Sunderland and with a real life metro line rumbling past the window, there’s a super sense of authenticity. Just a few minutes from the city centre, the various galleries are packed with child-friendly activities. The Journeys gallery looks at why people travel and has themes such as A Trip To London, War Time Journeys and Food On The Move plus visitors can jump into an original Sunderland bus cab and hop into the driving seat. In the Children’s Gallery, there’s a play train to discover (and master the controls in) plus a dressing up box complete with fireman, paramedic and police officer’s outfit. There are also plenty of transport-related toys and books to play with. Explore an 1860s booking office and meet the station master David Thomson Hide who had his home in the rooms above. In the Wagon Shed at the Sidings, you can see two railway wagons that originate from the early 20th century.
