Young Exporer's Passport 2008


Pick up a free Young Explorer's Passport, your pocket-sized guide to exciting places to visit in Sunderland.

You can collect your Young Explorer's Passport at Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, National Glass Centre, Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, Monkwearmouth Station Museum or at any one of Sunderland's libraries.

Take a journey around Sunderland, explore places you know and love, and adventure to new ones you've never seen before.

Get your Passport Stamped at each venue and receive your free Young Explorer's Badge and Certificate.

Once you have collected all the stamps, fill in your name and address and drop off the stamped section at any of the four venues or alternatively post it back to the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art to get a free Young Explorer's Badge and Certificate.

Also if you ask your parents/ guardian to sign the consent section, you will be added to a mailing list to receiving further information about the individual venues activities on a regular basis.

Who can get one?

There are no restrictions anyone can pick one up if they want.
