About Newcastle Museum, Newcastle

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

  • Newcastle Museum hasn't changed much. I guess it doesn't need to because it's a pretty good place. It's a great hot day or wet weather day place to go and get out of the weather. The kids like the playground and the sciencey stuff out the back. The trams a hit and they change the main display every so often. The price is right being free and it's in a good location to go for a walk along the harbour after.

  • Really big space to house the many interactive exhibits, staff are always very friendly. They also have a large, bright and roomy function room for corporate events. Nice variety of food from the very reasonably priced cafe

  • Interesting city to European eyes. Excellent setting on both the river Hunter and the ocean. Widespread and dotted with Victorian buildings from the early industrial splendour. Imposing Anglican cathedral with special memorabilia from the wars (historic flags and a gold book made with rings of war widows). Nice 'cappette' houses, astonishing trees and great pubs in Cooks Hill.

  • Great free place to take the kids with lots to entertain them. As a museum it has some great items of local historical value but it doesn't take long to get through it all. Could probably use more travelling exibitions of global importance for locals to access. Also would be better if the travelling exibitions didn't take over half the interactive science displays.

  • A great, interactive place for the kids to learn while having fun. Entertaining for the adults too. Bonus that it's free.
