Situated on the A135 - Yarm Road, Stockton, the museum is well sign posted. It has level access to the ground floor and Victorian Street and has toilet facilities for disabled patrons.
The museum provides a wonderful opportunity to explore domestic life of the past with the many recreated period rooms ranging from an 1880s parlour to a 1960s bedsit. There is also a recreation of a typical Victorian street where demonstrations of traditional crafts can be seen.In addition to these year round displays, the museum offers a varied programme of changing exhibitions and special events.
