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.

Newcastle Museum, Newcastle Reviews - Write a Review

  • 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.
