The Lock-up Cultural Centre - Review
Yet another one of the city’s heritage sites, the Lock-Up Cultural Centre used to be a Police precinct and a lock-up with one of a kind prison cells. Today, the cells are used by artists as a contemporary art gallery and also have a law-and-order museum within the walls of the precinct. The Lock-Up Cultural Centre is known for its artists-in-residence program to help them with their skill and brings a wide variety of diversity to the table.

The Lock-up Cultural Centre, Newcastle Reviews
Eerie, insightful and informative. The Lock-up gives the tourist a window-seat into the criminal justice system of Australia. Would recommend to anyone travelling through Newcastle!
Loved the experience, except for the video of the guy sewing his mouth together.
Awesome use of the old Newcastle lock up as a contemporary art venue - check public programs to make the most of your visit as always great talks and local community perspectives on art
Nice art. Very open and clean.
Grabbed a quick coffee, looks to be a good place but I was only there for a few minutes. Would like to try it again some day I am back in Newcastle.
