Morpeth Bagpipe Museum
This unusual attraction is the only bagpipe museum in the country, and may be the only one in the world. It is situated in a 13th century chantry in the rural market town of Morpeth a few miles north of Newcastle. The Morpeth Bagpipe Museum's aim is to chart the history and development of the Northumbrian pipes, and it does this by placing them in context with the history of pipes from all over the world (pipes from every continent are on display). The oldest instrument in the museum is a set of sixteenth century French pipes. An ingenious sound system allows visitors to hear a sample of the music, of whichever pipes they are looking at through a set of personal headphones. Check website for more details.
