Located in the historic Honeysuckle Railway workshops, the Museum is right in the heart of Newcastle. Newcastle Museum brings to life significant moments of past, present and future in three major permanent exhibitions open free to visitors.
A Newcastle Story explores the natural environment, early Aboriginal life and Newcastle’s history and beliefs. Fire and Earth unveils the hot and heavy industrial heart of the Hunter in a spectacular showcase of the region’s major industries. In Supernova, science, maths and engineering are the nuts and bolts of these interactive exhibits that challenge, inspire and engage people of all ages. The Museum also hosts temporary exhibitions throughout the year. From blockbuster visiting shows, to locally based community exhibitions, the Museum ensures there is always something new to entice and interest visitors.
