Newcastle Museum

New South Wales' leading non-metropolitan museum is currently closed and undergoing redevelopment. We are moving from our former site in an old brewery to the Honeysuckle Workshops of the Great Northern Railway. We will tell the story of Newcastle and it's people, our industrial heritage with a focus on BHP and coal mining and continue to educate and entertain visitors with our interactive science centre SuperNova.


The collections concentrate on local, natural, social, domestic or industrial material and are linked to local people, places and/or events.
