    Beautiful architecture, interesting contemporary art - one of my favourite museums in Europe. Watch out for the vertigo inspiring installation in the staircase.

    Great view from the top floors, friendly staff, lovely building. Good for a laugh to nod thoughtfully at puffed up descriptions of pretentious 'art', which is more creative than the works themselves

    If you are going to the restaurant on the 5th floor, just remember to book ahead to make sure you get to enjoy the food and the lovely view.

    Super varied modern art installations. Check what's on on their website (or just turn up with an open mind).

    This amazing old mill now houses an ever-changing collection of the world’s best contemporary art. It also has a tremendous art and design library.

    A must if you are visiting Newcastle. For the view, the gallery and the walk to it.

    Although hot chocolate isn't listed on the menu I recommend asking for it. Very tasty.

    The view over the Tyne from level 5 is fantastic! Especially at night, when the Millennium Bridge is illuminated.

    Beautiful building with beautiful views of the River Tyne..... as for the rest of it..... is it really art? Just as well it is free!

    Good cafe downstairs (cheaper than the restaurant on floor 6), viewing platform on floor 4 is the best - it's actually outside!

    Take the lift to the fifth floor and then work your way down. Bar on the sixth floor as well.

    Very powerful Anselm Kiefer exhibition, one of Europe's foremost post-war artists. The Exhibition spans 40 years of his work and includes the 2006 installation Palmsonntag (8 Oct - 16 Jan 2011).

    Stripping off naked and making a mad dash accross the Millennium bridge and back will get you free coffee in the downstairs cafe!

    Best thing about this place is the view and the walk there and back. Apparently there's some art inside as well.

    The view from the roof is great. Much better than the art inside.
