About

Our Project

These 100 objects were nominated by museums across Northern England. They represent only a small proportion of the many millions stored in their collections and can therefore tell only some of the incredible stories that reveal the North’s ability to reinvent itself, to survive, thrive and create new futures for itself and others.

Funded by The National Lottery and developed by Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums as part of the Great Exhibition of the North.
