About Newcastle Museum
The former Castlemaine Brewery has been home to the Newcastle Museum since 4 August 2011, when it moved from its previous location in Saville Street. It is a Bicentennial project that was developed through cooperation between interested parties including engineers and Super Nova Inc., who worked hard on promoting this idea throughout Australia during the 1980s until they found success with their final decision of selecting The Honeysuckle Railway Workshops as a site for what would become one of Australia’s premier museums
The original plan had been formulated at an earlier date--in fact beginning back in 1988 when three individuals came up with the idea.
Come to the Newcastle Museum, where you can enjoy free entry every Tuesday through Sunday. The museum strives for accessibility and as many opportunities are given so that people of all ages will be able to experience what it has in store!
