It is getting a bit long in the tooth and Expensive limited car parking spoils every visit.
I am sure this used to be an old Co-op warehouse / display centre that I used to visit when I was 15 year old and worked at a Co-op branch that has now been turned into a marvelous place to spend an afternoon. From the first exhibit of the Turbinia that greets you upon entering right down to the old voice recordings of the people of Scotswood and Benwell there is plenty to keep everyone from 3 year old to 300 year old engrossed for hours. Of course the souvenir shop is full of overpriced Chinese tat ( whatever happened to BRITISH made souvenirs ?) most of which has nothing to do with anything in the museum. I am surprised that no one has started a "MUSEUM OF CHINESE TAT THROUGH THE AGES" as just about everything this country used to make is already in museums and nearly everything we now make in this country today " assembled" in FOREIGN owned factories with foreign made components.
This museum cant realy grow because there is nothing BRITISH to add anymore.
I dont know how the old floors manage to hold the weight of some exhibits that were made to last.
Everyone coming to Newcastle should pay a visit before the council decides to close it .
Everyone living in Newcastle should pay a visit taking all the family because everyone will be able to relate to something on display
GET THERE SOON BECAUSE IT IS STILL FREE ADMISSION regardless of the "DONATION" they want to "CHARGE"
