‘The Museum of Classic Sci-Fi’ is a permanent exhibition, nestled in the historic, Northumberland village of Allendale. Situated beside the market place square, visitors will embark upon a nostalgic tour of some of the genre’s most influential imagery and themes. Featuring a substantial and eclectic collection of original screen-used props, costumes and production made artefacts; the museum tells the story of the Science-Fiction genre. In addition, artist Neil Cole has produced unique paintings and sculptures, to enhance the impact of the presentations.
Allendale is a picturesque village situated in the North Pennines ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. It is a popular tourist destination, noted for both its stunning scenery and history (signs of the area’s lead mining past remain evident). The market place boasts plentiful free parking (just metres from the Museum), welcoming coffee shops and pubs (just over the road!) and also a vibrant art gallery.
