Useful information


The star of this museum is indisputably Turbinia, a cutting-edge steamship built in Tyneside in 1984. Turbine-powered, it could move at a speed of 32.75 knots, a world record at the time. Exhibitions chart the city's history and underline the fundamental role of shipbuilding and pioneering technologies.
