Let’s Talk Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens

Sunderland City Council are excited to share that they are about to embark on a programme to refresh Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens and to make even more of the amazing space and collection.

Sunderland Council want to make sure that the whole museum is a modern, accessible, bright and innovative space that shows off Sunderland’s rich and vibrant histories to everyone near and far.

Sunderland Council aim to update the story of Sunderland – to make sure they better reflect the city’s communities. They will look to reinvent the Winter Gardens as a place to both learn and relax, using the natural surroundings to inspire and reconnect. They will work towards improving the building to respond to the climate emergency and make sure their collections are kept safe and made even more accessible. They will aim to reinvigorate the original connection between the museum and Mowbray Park, opening up a whole new way to experience both spaces.

Above all, Sunderland City Council will work towards the Museum & Winter Gardens being a backdrop for activity, learning, excitement, and engagement that brings the whole community together. To find out more about the programme visit Let’s Talk Sunderland.
