Talking Tees Valley: Behind the Scenes

04 September 2023

Each month we use objects and photos from our museums in the Tees Valley to take a closer look at the lives and stories from people in our area.

This time we are going to take a look behind the scenes of our museums and introduce you to our collections and some of the people who look after them.


Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of our museums? Or where on earth do we keep all our objects? In this pack, we are delving into the world of museum collections and answering all the questions about behind the scenes at the museum.
