The Discovery Museum is your one-stop shop to find out about life and the history of Newcastle. If you find yourself with a few hours spare in the area, why not pop along?
Immerse yourself in the history of Newcastle and Tyneside, through permanent displays and temporary exhibitions spread across three floors. There's something for the whole family at the Discovery Museum, including special displays for children between 5 and 7 years old.
Explore the area's industrial and maritime past, perfectly exhibited by its housing of the Turbinia, the 34-metre long ship built to test how steam turbines could be used to power ships.
Best of all, admission to the Discovery Museum is completely free. It is one of the largest free museums in the North East, so make sure you pay it a visit in your next trip!
