Woodhorn Museum, Archive & Country Park
Woodhorn, near Ashington, is Northumberland’s largest museum and a major visitor attraction with around 100,000 visitors each year. It is also home to Northumberland archives covering all aspects from over 800 years of the county’s history. Woodhorn is at the site of a former colliery complete with historic pit head buildings and displays on the coal mining and social history of the area. We also hold the collection of paintings by the Ashington Group of pitmen painters and have four temporary art/exhibition galleries which host our varied public programme of exhibitions and events.
Woodhorn is a registered charity and receives funding from Northumberland County Council as well as a variety of grants. We also generate income from our café, shop and function rooms.
