Newcastle Museum is a vibrant and welcoming centre for and about Newcastle.
The new Museum opened to the community on 4 August 2011. Located in the historic Honeysuckle Railway workshops, the Museum is right in the heart of Newcastle. The new Museum is a more than simply a re-invention of the original Newcastle Regional Museum which was located in Newcastle West and founded in 1988 as a Bicentennial project. It is a reinvigorated, contemporary Museum that brings new exhibitions and experiences in a centre designed to provide efficient and sustainable services as well as appealing and accessible programs.
Newcastle Museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays except during holidays when it remains open seven days a week. The Museum aims to be as accessible as possible to as many people as possible. Entry is free.
Free admission for general exhibition.
Entry to Newcastle Museum is free
Sunday, Tuesday- Saturday
10:00 to 17:00
10:00 to 05:00 (Open 7 days a week during NSW school holidays)
You will find educational kids games and toys, local history books, jewellery, Newcastle branded souvenirs and specially designed t-shirts and much more as part of the fabulous new Museum Shop collection.
The Shop stocks environmentally aware and ethical products sourced from local artists and Australian companies wherever possible.
