The Discovery Museum has a huge collection of science and industry objects and lots of these are related to transport. We have forms of transport like the steamship Turbinia and the electric powered Sinclair C5. 

The collection also features the Gladstone Adams car windscreen wipers prototype and the first aeroplane joystick invented by Arthur George. 

Compare and contrast, spot the different and colour in some of the transport from our collection.

See a video about Newcastle transport inventions and a how-to make your own balloon powered car. 

Have a go at making your own 3d Challenger Tank. 

The Tyne and Wear Archives Flickr page has a range of transport related images, from ships and shipbuilding to locomotives.
