Discover The History Of Glass Making

Discover Sunderland's rich heritage of glass making with our interactive permanent exhibition.

Sunderland has a rich heritage of glass making that dates back to 674AD.  Benedict Biscop, founder of Wearmouth-Jarrow Priory, brought skilled craftsmen from Gaul to create the first stained glass window in England for St Peter’s Church, Monkwearmouth.  Using compelling personal stories from local people and striking audio visual display, Stories of Glass in Sunderland is our interactive exhibition which charts the origins, growth and legacy of glass making in the City.

 View an interactive tour of our Stories of Glass in Sunderland exhibition.
