  • Our second visit to the Baltic Centre for Contepory Art and it didn't dissapoint, lots of different exhibitions on but today one by JUDY CHICAGO (16 November 2019 – 19 April 2020 ) that I thought...  more »
  • Loved the views from the viewing platform, the lifts are fast and clean. Gift shop well stocked with a friendly helpful young man serving, definitely worth a visit.  more »

  • The exhibitions are quite alternative and contemporary, but they are left for the visitor to interpret and draw their own meaning from. It is also free and there is a viewing platform/box on the top floors which give stunning views of the city of Newcastle and it’s quayside. The shop also has some great delights (at a cost though) of all things Northeast - so ideal for souvenirs!
  • Hadn't planned to visit the Baltic when we came to Newcastle for a couple of days, but we wandered in. It was free, so what was there to lose? The exhibitions that were on were definitely of the contemporary art style (meaning quite unusual)...however they were good and thought provoking. Would definitely consider visiting in the future when there were further exhibitions. Looking round it also seems like a place that would be great to bring children to look at things and get a bit hands on too.
