Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens temporarily closed as water main repair work takes place
Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens closed to the public on Saturday, November 26 so repair work to a nearby water main could take place.
The attraction’s usual opening hours on a Saturday are between 10am and 4pm, but members of the public were notified shortly before 1pm on Saturday that the museum, in Burdon Road, would be closing for the rest of the day due to “unforeseen circumstances”. The city library is also closed.
They said: “Unfortunately, issues with a water main nearby meant that a decision was taken to close Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens at 1pm on Saturday, November 26 to allow time for repair work to be completed. We anticipate this issue being resolved by Northumbrian Water today [Saturday] to allow for reopening on Monday, November 28.”
