The museum, founded in 1987, contains a large collection of historic bagpipes, especially, but not exclusively, historic Northumbrian smallpipes and Border pipes, mainly based on the collection of William Alfred Cocks (1892 - 1971). The collection had initially been housed in the Black Gate, Newcastle upon Tyne, the home of the city’s Society of Antiquaries. The collection also includes a large collection of bagpipe music, both in print and in manuscript, and Cocks’s collection of photographs and press cuttings relating to bagpipes; many of these refer to the early years of the Northumbrian Pipers’ Society. The current curator is Anne Moore.
