A trip out - Discovery Museum

We spent a fun morning at the Discovery Museum today. This is one of the many places that make my list of 'why Newcastle is a great place to live' and we always enjoy our visits. 

We looked at Newcastle through the ages in the Newcastle Story exhibit, from Medieval times to the original Tyne Bridge with houses and shops on it.

The exhibit included the present day and Harry was excited to find a picture of The Sage Gateshead. We also watched a film showing the building of the millenium bridge and The Sage.

We had a play in the science maze - turning wheels to make balls travel round without falling

And of course in the water area, where a full change of clothes is always required (at least for my children it is!). They love it in here and we would have stayed longer but the car ticket was about to run out.

  1. We love visiting there too (though I prefer to avoid the water area as Thomas finds it a little too exciting!).
