Preston Park Museum reopens to the public after revamp
Preston Park Museum in Eaglescliffe has reopened to the public following a £7m overhaul.
Themed galleries and areas for schools have been added while structural changes have also been made.
The investment, which was supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, has also restored the museum's Victorian street.
Ken Dixon, Stockton Council's cabinet member for arts, leisure and culture, said the attraction was "truly inspirational".
The council hopes visitor numbers will increase as a result of the redevelopment which will allow more of the borough's collection to go on show.
