This is a science and local history museum. Newcastle has terrific maritime history, and has also played a large part in founding game-changing science and tech. The incredible interactive displays at the museum cover history from Roman times to the first decade of the new millennium. There’s also mini-museum dedicated to the 15th/19th The King's Royal Hussars and the Northumberland Hussars, covering 200 years of live in the army. But the museum’s favourite exhibit is the story of the Turbinia, a 34 metre steam longship that was once the fastest vessel on water.
