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

  • 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.

  • A somewhat small museum but informative. Great displays and gets you the local information on the town. How it was formed and changed through the years. Something not to be missed is the small show on the steel works. Its very enjoyable and only like 10 minutes long. But its a more appealing way to hear of the steelworks in a way not easily forgotten and easy to understand. Kids will love it or may get scared as it involves smoke machines etc but good for all ages really.

  • Small but a nice museum in Newcastle, one of the best I've seen by far in a while. Parking is close by near the harbour to which you can also checkout the other local attractions whilst visiting this lovely museum. It can be a nice place to take your older kids, I wouldn't recommend taking young ones .

  • We had great experience at the Newcastle museum. We explored old railway engines, many scientific concepts and played many puzzles & games. It offers free Wi-Fi. Also, the place is always bubbling with activities by families with kids. It is near Hunter River harbour which is another attraction. Must visit for people visiting Newcastle.
