Discovery Museum

Discovery Museum

Discovery Museum is housed in an ornate, gothic, high Victorian building and provides a fascinating insight into Tyneside’s engineering, shipbuilding and entrepreneurial heritage, with eclectic exhibits and interactive displays.

A fascinating venue for corporate events, it boasts a number of versatile spaces, from the impressive, vaulted Great Hall, which can hold up to 380 guests, to the small meeting room, which holds 15, when laid out in boardroom style. In addition, up to 100 guests can dine, or 200 can enjoy drinks and canapés, all in the shadow of the steamship Turbinia, once the fastest ship in the world and the centrepiece of the ground floor exhibition.

The whole museum can hold 1000 guests for large scale events and conferences. Along with its choice of rooms and spaces – all of which are available for exclusive, private hire in the evening - Discovery Museum provides a full range of AV equipment, catering facilities and museum tours.
