Great local museum. Compact enough for kids to stay interested. Particularly loved the Tyne and History of Newcastle sections. Really engaging social history. Super staff and nice cafe. Will return.

A free entry museum which included lots of exhibits, mainly in relation to Newcastle and surrounding area. There are lots of different topics covered, some a bit too wordy for kids, but it was still really interesting. Some areas have interactive bits for the kids...More

Came with my 2 boys (11 and 10) and was a good morning out. Boys enjoyed the interactive science part, I really enjoyed the history of Newcastle part and the latte from the cafe.
