This unusual museum specialises in the history and development of Northumbrian small pipes and their music. They are set in the context of bagpipes around the world - from India to Inverness.

An ingenious sound system brings the pipes to life - each visitor may listen to the music through personal headphones and learn the difference between a rant and a reel.

An excellent selection of recorded and sheet music on sale.
