Ways to Play: Build

Build your own Stephenson's Rocket

Rocket at Discovery


Until Sunday 18 April


On display in Discovery Museum is an amazing model of Stephenson’s Rocket, one of the most important steam engines ever invented, built in Newcastle not far from the museum.

Three years ago, Rocket came back to the North East and Discovery Museum was its home for a few months.
