Meetings, training courses and seminars
The museum has two ground floor education rooms available for hire, one of which has a private garden with patio and pond. These rooms can be merged to create one larger education space.
The Natural History Society of Northumbria’s ornate board room on the second floor can also be hired for small groups. Our location in Newcastle city centre and the museum’s high levels of accessibility makes it an ideal space for meetings, training courses and seminars.
