Discovery Museum

Discovery Museum

The Discovery Museum allows visitors to find out about life in Newcastle and Tyneside, from the area’s rich history of maritime, science and technology to our local military history and current innovative steps forward. The museum has been designed to be a fun learning environment – with plenty of interactive displays and activities.

One of the most impressive displays is the Turbinia – once the fastest ship in the world. The ship was built on Tyneside¬† and you can find out about how it works and see the 35 metro long vessel up-close at the Discovery Museum. For more information about upcoming displays and what’s going on, check out the Discovery Museum Website.
