Located along the Newcastle Harbour, the museum tells the tale of the city’s mining and steel production. Popular amongst the younger age groups, the Newcastle Museum offers many-a-interactive activities for all walks of life. For instance, you could wear the garb of the workers and see for yourself what a day at a furnace plant looks like. The exhibits also expand to the Aboriginal history as well as the catastrophic earthquake of 1989.

Small museum but it’s was a great visit staff were really good. Great for kids I had even had fun best time to go is on the weekends because the Wilson parking lee warf it’s all day free parking. Will return
Very cool museum, and it's free. My son and I really enjoyed the BHP light and information show. It was quite exciting.
it's free to visit the exhibition, but the content inside is a little bit empty
Thoroughly enjoyed this visit with the grandchildren. Free admittance, lots of interactive science displays, pictorial history of Newcastle, Coal Mining display and BHP display including an hourly 10 minute multi-media light and sound show of molten steel being poured from a furnace into a large ladle, had the kids mesmerised. Normally not opened on Mondays except during school holidays.
Great place to take the kids for some fun and a little learning. Also some great displays and changing exhibitions for both young and old alike.
