Ideal for ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and drinks receptions

The Great Hall is our magical art-deco space at the top of the museum and is one of the building's original features. It has capacity for up to 350 guests and can be transformed into a stunning setting for ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and evening receptions. The grandeur of the Great Hall and proximity to Newcastle city centre makes Discovery Museum a unique choice for wedding celebrations. 

As a guide we suggest you enjoy your wedding ceremony in the Great Hall followed by a drinks reception in Story of the Tyne or Science Maze. You can then enjoy your wedding breakfast and evening reception back in the Great Hall.
