Things To Do Newcastle West, Newcastle, New South Wales
Miss Porter’s House Museum is a Newcastle treasure.
Take a step back into history in the heart of the city. Visitors of all ages can explore Porter family stories and discover the secrets of an Edwardian home.
You can chat with friendly, knowledgeable guides or take a self-directed tour.
Enjoy the Porters’ stencilled ceilings, period garden, historic fernery, furniture, handcraft and a century of household items. Visitors have described the museum as one of Newcastle’s little jewels and a wonderful social history resource.
Built by Herbert Porter in 1909, the family lived in their terrace home until 1997. It was then bequeathed to the National Trust and survives with its contents intact as a living snapshot of life in twentieth century Newcastle.
Explore on an Open Day, book a special school or group tour or take a guided walk around the Porters’ neighbourhood.
For that special friend or colleague why not truly savour the Edwardian ambience and indulge in a morning or afternoon tea and tour.
Newcastle is a stunning coastal city. Make Miss Porter’s House Museum part of your visit while enjoying breathtaking beaches, a working harbour plus cultural, culinary and architectural delights.
