Hexham Skull Trail

Overview

Overview

Can you count all the Skulls lurking in the creepy corners of Hexham Old Gaol? Pick up your trail sheet at the museum Welcome Desk then explore the museum to try and find all the skulls. Count how many you can find and make your way back to the Welcome Desk with your completed trail sheet.

If you’ve spotted them all then you’ll be rewarded with a small sweet treat! The Hexham Skull Trail is inspired by the gruesome history of the Old Gaol and the museum collections. Find out about our permanent ‘skull in residence’ in the Charlton Room. This experience is included at no additional cost as part of your Museums Northumberland Annual Membership where children can visit for free.
