The Discovery Museum, Newcastle upon Tyne

The Discovery Museum, Newcastle upon Tyne

The Discovery Museum is a science and engineering museum that showcases 200 years of local achievement and offers fascinating insights into Newcastle’s maritime, social and military history.
Highlights include the Turbinia, a 34 metre-long ship that was the test model for steam turbine-powered ships. It was built in 1894 and soon broke all speed records. It became famous when it gatecrashed Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. In a daring breach of protocol, the ship raced between lines of navy ships in front of the watching crowd; it easily evaded any navy vessel. Not long afterwards, the Royal Navy declared that all future vessels were to be steam-turbine powered.
Other things to see here include the BFI Mediatheque, an archive of over 2,000 films and TV shows available for viewing in-house. For other great nights out, go to the Tyneside Cinema and Theatre Royal.
