Lunch with Leon episode 57 – Beamish Museum

In this week’s Lunch with Leon, Leon heads to the Northeast of England to visit Beamish – and meet with various members of the museum team.

To start off, Leon learns about the development of the museum since its founding in 1970 – inspired by open air museums around the world which spotlight how life used to be and how life has changed as a result of technology and innovation. Beamish Museum is designed to tell the story of life in the Northeast throughout the years – utilising communities and residents to shroud every exhibition and story in real experiences.

Leon is also given a chance to find out about the transport used in and around the Beamish Museum – which factors old and restored buses and public transport into the museum to really provide visitors with an immersive experience from start to finish.

An unrivalled look at Beamish Museum and all it has to offer visitors.
