The Morpeth Chantry Bagpipe Museum features well over 120 sets of bagpipes hailing from Spain, France, and several other countries. The museum specializes in a particular bagpipe not many people outside of Northumberland know about, the Northumbrian small pipes. These musical instruments have a quieter, slightly sweeter sound than their well known Scottish cousins. Small pipes were considered chamber instruments used primarily for indoor entertainment.  

Know Before You Go

The museum is in the same building as the tourist information center for the town, which in turn was also the first grammar school in the town.
