You no longer need to pre-book your museum admission, except for selected events.

You are here:

Meccano Magic 2022

See construction brought to life and get hands-on with Meccano at this fantastic free event.

Explore displays of a wide range of Meccano models—static, mechanised and remote-controlled.

Then have a go yourself in the hands-on modelling area, where you’ll have the chance to make your own creation using plastic Meccano. This year, there’s a competition to find the best model!

This event is presented in association with the North Eastern Meccano Society, who also provided the header image—a member's model of the 2023 Stadler Tyne and Wear Metro train.


We expect this to be a popular event, so we recommend booking your free Meccano Magic tickets in advance. This will give you an arrival time slot—we recommend allowing 90 minutes for a visit, but you are welcome to stay until the museum closes.
