Discovery Museum Reception Desk
Based in Discovery Museum in the heart of Newcastle, Tyne & Wear Archives is home to thousands of documents, housed on 14km of shelving, relating to the five local districts of Newcastle, Sunderland, Gateshead, North Tyneside and South Tyneside.
Join us and discover documents that range from the 12th to 21st centuries and include building plans, school, hospital and church records as well as business records, especially those of important local industries such as shipbuilding, engineering and mining.
The Tyne & Wear Shipyards Collection is of international significance as it is included on the UNESCO Memory of the World Register, which included documents such as the Magna Carta and Domesday Book.
