Monkwearmouth Railway Station served Monkwearmouth, Sunderland, England. It was built in the 1840s and was once the main railway station in the city.[1] The railway station closed in March 1967 as a result of the Beeching Axe and featured a restored booking office dating from the Edwardian period.

The Tyne and Wear Metro and mainline trains still pass through the station without stopping, but the Metro calls at St. Peter's station a few hundred yards south of the old station.

The museum is a Grade II* listed building.[2] As well as the ticket office visitors can explore the Wagon Shed, Journeys Gallery and Children's Gallery.[3]

There is also an ongoing programme of events and exhibitions.
