Top 5 best museums in the UKBack

BeamishBritain is home to some of the best museums in the world, and many of them are free to visit.

With Christmas fast approaching, if you’re thinking about doing a spot of sightseeing, check out the Trusted Dealers’ top five best museums to visit in the UK.

Beamish Museum

Described as “the living museum of the North”, Beamish is the UK’s largest and best open-air museum. Visiting this museum will take you right back to the 1910s where you can sample ordinary life as it was in 1913, complete with trams, trains and horse-drawn buses, a working farm, a mine, a school – there is even a dentist’s surgery in the reconstructed high street which is not for the faint hearted! A day at Beamish provides a unique opportunity to step back in time and relive life how it was 100 years ago. For further information visit www.beamish.org.uk

British Museum

The British Museum wins the accolade for the most visited museum in the UK and it is easy to see why. All roads to understanding the history of world civilisation start here and within the museum’s four walls lies enough culture to keep even the most curious historian happy. It opens late on Fridays and if you sign up a child to become a Young Friend of the museum you gain access to tickets for one of its excellent sleepover nights! For further information visit www.britishmuseum.org

Scottish National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery

One of the many highlights of Edinburgh is the Scottish National Gallery which is housed in a splendid neoclassical building just below Edinburgh Castle. Both the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery are linked by a brilliant underground space and showcase a collection of Scotland’s finest art and exhibitions. Visit the museum in January to view the exquisite Turner collection. For further information visit www.nationalgalleries.org

Nottingham Galleries of Justice Museum

Visit the Galleries of Justice to enjoy a spine-chilling collection of artefacts and thought provoking displays relating to crime and punishment. The Galleries of Justice are located in Nottingham’s former prison where grim and gruesome tales are brought to life by a team of actors as they reveal to you the ancient cells below the old courthouse. For further information visit www.galleriesofjustice.org.uk

Tower Museum

Located in Londonderry, the UK’s city of culture 2013, the Tower Museum is an extremely good local museum. It has effectively managed to put the recent troubles in Northern Ireland into historical perspective by the use of interactive and audiovisual displays, and it tackles some of these sensitive issues head-on in an interesting and moving way.
