The Newcastle Museum tells the stories of the city and the wider Hunter region.

Fire and Earth is a gallery dedicated to the local coal industry and the BHP steelworks.

The exhibition A Newcastle Story examines the social history of the city and the impact of the 1989 earthquake.

Supernova is a hands-on science centre in the Museum and includes Mininova, for visitors under 115 cm in height.

The Newcastle Museum is located in the refurbished Honeysuckle Railway Workshops, alongside the wharfs of the Hunter River. The Civic train station is right behind the Museum.

The Museum is open from 10.00 am – 5.00 pm, Tuesday to Sunday. General admission is free.
