The history of Newcastle from Roman times to the present day is revealed in a walk-through reconstruction of the streets, homes and communities of the past.

The journey includes:

Roman Newcastle

There are little mice hiding in the display cabinets. The 60's area has a retro Tardis console and there are flaps to lift, drawers to open and plenty to discover as you stroll through the past.
