My daughter loves when I take her to the museum for a play. Even better that it is free! Nice place for a coffee also!

“Family Outing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Great mueseum! Kids loved the hands on exhibits and even the Coal exhibit. Lots to see for all ages. There are toilets and a cafe-although I haven't eaten there. Its located right next to train station and there parking behind the museum.

Visited the museum as hadn't been for a while. The displays have improved. The old tram is in great condition. A nice place to visit but doesn't take long.

good history of Newcastle. Exhibitions are a little sparse. BHP exhibition give a good oversite of the time it was in Newcastle

Displays are interesting, interactive and informative. I have lived near Newcastle for 20 years, and discovered new things when I visited this museum.
