We were looking for a fun filled day what didnt break the bank. The children loved visiting the museum. There is so much to do and it makes learning fun for them. My 2yo loves the water activity room.

Nice museum. It is free but not simple. We only saw the part about Newcastle and had a tea or coffee in the nice cafe. Next time we will do some other part of the museum and maybe another time another part.
