The Discovery Museum

About Us

Getting married? We'd like to propose something a little different.

Discovery Museum is housed in the old Co-operative Wholesale Society building, Blandford House. Opening in 1899, it quickly became an iconic building in Newcastle city centre. Blandford House became a museum in 1978 and was re-launched as Discovery Museum in 1993.

Here at Discovery Museum we can offer you and your guests something truly unique and unlike any other venue in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Join us here for your ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast, or all three. We have a variety of spaces to choose from, so you can choose the perfect atmosphere to celebrate your special day.
