Discovery Museum

Blandford Square, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4JA, United Kingdom | 0191 232 6789 | Website

Venue Description

Discover all about life in Newcastle and Tyneside, from the area's renowned maritime history and world-changing science and technology right through to fashion through the eras and military history. The museum is bursting with interactive displays, which makes it the perfect place to learn and have fun. Our displays are regularly updated and complemented by an array of free, fun learning activities. One of our favourite exhibits - Turbinia - dominates the entrance to the Museum. Invented on Tyneside, it is the first ship to be powered by a steam turbine.


As an organisation, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums is striving to put people at the centre of museums - on both an intellectual and physical level. We are committed to ensuring that as many people have the opportunity to visit and enjoy the museums and galleries as possible. Our aim is to create a user-friendly environment which is relevant to the needs of the visitor and one which provides freedom of choice. The approach taken is much wider than simply providing facilities for disabled people. Access is for all visitors.
