Yesterday we spent three hours with our grandchildren at the Discovery Museum. We have been many times before but each time we seem to see something new and of great interest. This time there was a fascinating exhibit of antique/vintage penny slot/arcade machines. The children really enjoyed operating them but the highlight of our visit was the opportunity to create something from a selection of cardboard, string, etc. Our granddaughter made a doll from a plastic bottle. They really enjoyed.

Me and my wife took our kids to the Life Science Centre with our 3 kids ( 13 and twin 4 year olds). What a brilliant day it turned out to be, as not been for quite some years. Heard a lot about the dino exhibition did not disappoint. Both our twin boys love dinosaurs and this really made them happy seeing dinosaurs for the size they are. There was absolutely lots to do the moment you entered the place. Will def go back when the next exhibition is on. Fully recommend if you want a good day out.

I used to go here when it was the Hancock Museum especially when I was studying the Ammonite collection for my dissertation. This was my second visit after the museum became the Great North Museum and I think it has vastly improved the visitors experience. I like they way the specimen are displayed and are much easier to view. This visit was mainly to see the Mithras exhibition but obviously I viewed and photographed many other items. I particularly attracted to the electronic ancient Egyptian.
