Visitor information

You no longer need to book a ticket to visit Discovery Museum. 

To ensure the wellbeing of visitors and staff we will be monitoring numbers to ensure the museum does not become too crowded. We also recommend that you wear a face covering when you visit. 

Our under 5s area Play Tyne remains closed for essential safety maintenance. All other spaces and exhibits are open again.
