Christmas Parties

Throughout December, the Discovery Museum is available to hire for a wide variety of festive functions, from private lunches or dinners with work colleagues, to large-scale parties. We give party planners the chance to create their own bespoke event to suit your own budget. The Discovery Museum, which celebrates Tyneside's engineering, shipbuilding and entrepreneurial heritage, can seat 350 guests in the Great Hall, and in addition up to 100 guests can dine or 200 can enjoy drinks and canapés in the shadow of the steamship Turbinia, once the fastest ship in the world.
