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

  • Very enjoyable. Specially the science section. I can spent hours in that section. It is also good depiction of Newcastle history, Minning and industrial past activities. Little tea and coffee shop is good for refreshment.

  • Interesting museum for this little town of NSW. There is the history of how the wars affected the residents, the beginning of grape growing and harvesting for wine making, the coal industry and a hands-on science area for young and old to play. Cafe wasn’t too bad though it is really a counter within the museum shop with wall tables and stools to perch on. Whole place is clean and tidy even the public facilities were spotless. Entry is free so if it’s a rainy day when. You get to Newcastle, wander over to this Museum. You’ll be surprised at how many things you might recognise from grandma or grandpa’s photos of old.

  • Great historical and science museum for its size, and best of all, it's free 👍. Learnt alot about the history of the steel works and the evolution of the nearby wineries of the Hunter region. The science exhibits are more tailored for younger children but it was still fun, especially lifting up a whole car through the magic of pulleys. Highly recommended

  • A great history of Newcastle to be seen here. They hold multiple exhibitions here during the year, that cost a small price. Free wifi throughout the building and out the front. Good undercover area with chairs to sit out the front in.

  • 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
