The museum in Jarrow is dedicated to the life and times of Venerable Bede.
Venerable Bede was an author, scholar and monk who lived in 7th Century and was based in the monastery of St Paul. It is now a scheduled monument.
The attraction also included a reconstruction of a farm of those times.
Professor Dame Rosemary Cramp, an authority on Anglo Saxon history and the original excavator of the historic Jarrow monastery, said:
“In Bede’s lifetime (c.673 to 735 AD) this area of Tyne and Wear was one of the great cultural centres of Europe, and, in the site buildings and the displays in the museum here, we can catch a unique glimpse of that world.”
