A film about Discovery Museum in Newcastle by the Museums and Galleries Disabled Access Group. Find out about Discovery Museum and what you can see here. You can also hear about the access facilities from the members of the group.

The Secret Bunker

Kitty Brightwell, a former plotter in the Women's Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) during World War II, tells the fascinating history of Newcastle's Secret Bunker. Find out how this RAF Fighter Command Headquarters in Kenton played a hugely significant role in the Battle of Britain. The film can be used alongside a Box of Delight (our free artefact loan service for schools) from Discovery Museum, and ends with Kitty setting a Secret Bunker Challenge to participants using the artefact box.
