Stephenson Railway Museum

George and Robert Stephenson lived for twenty years in the North Tyneside area, developing their pioneering projects. They contributed to the railway development, which had an important impact on people’s lives.

The Stephenson Railway Museum celebrates their name showing an important collection of rail transportation like the early locomotive ‘Billy’ for example, which is a forerunner of the world- famous ‘Rocket’.

The museum is also home to an electric locomotive built in 1909, steam and diesel locomotives which travelled on Tyneside and elsewhere from about the 1880s, an electrically-powered parcel van of 1904, and much more!

It presents interactive exhibitions which will make you explore the way trains work and show the importance of railway development in our region and around the world.
