Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens - Grade II
The Museum opened in 1879 and its design, originally modelled on the Crystal Palace, resembles a French chateau. The Winter Gardens just behind the Museum echoed the original design until the glass structure was damaged in 1941 by an air raid and was later demolished. Thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Museum was restored and the Winter Gardens rebuilt in 2001.
