My first visit to BeamishMuseum was about 3 and half hours, but only saw about half of the museum,. The ticket of admission is valid 12 months, unrestricted return visits The museum is an open air area of 350 acres in countryside. The route round is circular, and is serviced by tram and bus free of charge. My first visit was blue skies, sunny but very cold,the second was cloudy but a bit warmer.--This time i saw the colliery,Pit village, Eston Church, Quilters cottage,1940 farm,Railway Station,Northern Garage,and i found time for a pint in Sun Inn pub. This visit another 3 and hours hours, and still plenty more to see. A great place.BEAMISH MUSEUM.Outside the main enterance.
