This is a free / voluntary donation attraction and is a very interesting day out for both adults & kids alike ! Cafe is also ok but can get very busy at lunchtime.

Plenty of things to see and do for kids. Interesting exhibition on working life in Newcastle but not quite what we were looking for. We were hoping for more about the mining community but Beamish Museum near Durham is better for that
