It was a great day out at the museum! We started on the ground floor. It was a detail of ancient times in Newcastle. It was very interesting! On the same floor was the Fun Fair which operated by coins. All the activities were very authentic and fun! The second floor was more history of Newcastle. The third floor was our favourite! It was the Science Maze and had many hands on things. It was great fun for everyone. It can take 2-3 hours to go through. We loved it!
