Newcastle won Favourite UK City at The Guardian Travel Awards last night!
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 group talks about their favourite exhibits and explains what help is available for visitors such as ramps, lifts, audio guides and pre-visit information packs.
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.
