1671 Mayor Making a Parton photograph

It's our 80th birthday! Newcastle museum has welcomed visitors since 1943.

Using the objects and resources we hold, our purpose is to explore the history of the borough. So, for our special birthday exhibition we have chosen to tell the story of the museum itself. 


The exhibition is free to visit.

Opening times

The exhibition will run from Saturday 7 January to 26 March 2023.

10am - 5pm Tuesdays to Saturdays.

1.30 - 5pm on Sundays.
