The Great North Museum, Hancock:Β 

This small, yet wonderful, museum can be found close to the City Centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne. The nearest postcode is NE2 4PT. There is no parking on site, we usually opt for the Claremont Road pay & display car park close by. This car park can be found using the postcode NE2 4AA.

Entrance to the museum is free, another reason why we love it here. Whilst the museum might be small they certainly pack a lot of excellent information into the building. For those with little ones keen to learn more about Hadrians Wall, sea animals, fossils, the Ancient Egyptians and much more then you will love it here!

A fantastic family attraction!

As we entered the museum the staff very kindly gave each of my children a map – we all know they love a map!! From here I let the children guide me as to what they wanted to look at first. The map was simple and easy to navigate. The museum itself was small enough so that the children could work their way through each exhibition. We saw fossils, dinosaur bones, Egyptians and LOTS of stuffed animals! There are interactive sections of the museum too; jigsaws to make, buttons to press and nosies to be heard. All four of my children love this museum, it caters for all ages.

We completed our trip with a visit to The Mouse House, a small interactive section of the museum designed especially for younger children.

We often pair this museum trip with a visit to Exhibition Park, you can find out more details on this park here.Β
