Newcastle Museum - Review

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

  • Interesting free exhibitions of Newcastle's history. It's a great place to visit just to learn a bit more about the local area, and to escape the heat in hot days! The spider's exhibition was priced fairly well, and there are concessions available. The exhibition had interesting facts, live and dead specimens, interactive games, big models and you could use your phone to get 3D effects on some of the features. There is paid parking nearby, and it's close to other cafes and restaurants. Staff were polite and helpful

  • Great place to learn the history of Newcastle and better still, it's free. They have a great interactive animated light show on BHP and how they shaped Newcastle's history. The toddler interactive area keeps the energetic busy so you can have a break. The coffee shop has good coffee and seating inside and out.

  • Nice museum with lots of science, fun and much more. Great day trip to get the kids out of the house if they’re bored. In my opinion like most museums this would get boring after more than 5 visits. Next to the abandoned civic station which is quite cool to wander around.

  • Spent a good couple of hours there. Enjoyed it. Great for kids. Lots to do. Recommend a visit

  • Such a great place. Loved the spider display. Many other displays took me back down memory lane. The BHP Exhibit was wonderful to watch. Was much enjoyed by my granddaughters 6 and 5 as well.
