Discovery Museum SECONDARY Resized DC
Discover all about life in Newcastle and Tyneside at Discovery Museum, 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. Visitors to the Discovery Museum can reap the benefits of free entry, as it's positioned within Newcastle it has great transport links for both public and private transport. The displays are regularly updated and complemented by an array of free, fun learning activities and a changing programme of exhibitions. One of the favourite exhibits - Turbinia - dominates the entrance to the Museum. Invented on Tyneside, it is the first ship to be powered by a steam turbine. The 35 metre vessel was once the fastest ship in the world and her history is brought to life in the Turbinia Story display. She sets the standard for a day out that is guaranteed to be filled with breath-taking discoveries. Discovery Museum is managed by Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums on behalf of Newcastle City Council.
