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, Newcastle’s people and stories. Fire and Earth unveil 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 and travelling 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.
Entry is free. You can access via the Civic Light Rail Stop and enter through Museum Park, behind the Newcastle Visitor Information Centre.
