A great museum with lots which showcase the North East - but if you are older then you have probably visited enough times to have seen everything more than once. There are a lot of fixed exhibitions which haven't changed for a very long time. But saying all that it is good for younger people and it can keep them amused for most of the day. Best bit is it is big, open and free with lots and lots of hands on stuff. Very well worth a visit for younger people and excellent for new visitors to the region.
There is a cafe but it does have plenty of room for improvement and I would recommend you eat before or after your visit.
Worth a visit but if you are local and have been with young children then you will probably find that not much has changed.
