Mr George's Museum of Time
Mr George's Museum of Time is a watch and clock museum, gift shop, and watch and clock repair specialists. The Museum is centred around the 'Mr George the clock man' series of children's stories written by local author Diana Bell. They are based on her father who was a watch and clock repairer in Northumberland and the adventures he has with his daughter 'Dinah' as they travel round Northumberland repairing clocks.
Diana also has a large collection of watches, clocks, tools and parts which she inherited and keeps adding to which forms the basis of the museum collection. There are also lots of activities for children throughout the museum including Mr George story DVDs!
As of December 2014 the Museum has FREE entry, but as we are privately owned and so do not get external funding there is a suggested donation of £2 per adult and £1 per child.
Any donations are gratefully recieved!
