Which Way North at Great North Museum: Hancock

About

Which Way North is a visually bold, theatrical exhibition which will takeover Great North Museum: Hancock this summer as part of Great Exhibition of the North 2018. A major hub venue for Great Exhibition, start your journey at this brilliant museum as it takes you on a memorable journey. Along the way you will discover Northern pioneers – our inventors, engineers, scientists, designers and artists who are influencing the way we live now and in to the future.

Featuring an imaginary world reached via a gateway at the North Pole it reveals a fantastical realm which embraces the possibilities of invention, art, travel and science.

Exhibits will include Helen Sharman's spacesuit - the very same which she wore as the first Briton in space; John Lennon's piano and George Stubb's world famous portrait of the Yorkshire horse Whistlejacket.

Great North Museum is a Great Exhibition of the North hub venue and is also the perfect starting point to pick up any one of the Get North Design, Art or Innovation Trails.
