Learn hands on at The Discovery Museum, Newcastle

The Discovery Museum in Newcastle is probably most famous for its Turbinia exhibit – the first vessel to be powered by a steam turbine and dreamt up by Charles Parsons, who served his engineering apprentice at a Newcastle firm. However, this city centre gem of an attraction has much, much more to see and will keep visitors from 1 to 100 fascinated, such is the eclectic mix of exhibits, many pleasingly hands-on. Tyne and Wear was a powerhouse of technical engineering for two centuries and its influence in this area touched the rest of the world. Look out also for the light bulb exhibition detailing how Joseph Swan unveiled his show-stopping light bulb invention at a lecture hall in Newcastle.
