The Discover vouchers can be redeemed on a Family pass only, which retails at $25. A family pass admits four people. 
Bookings are essential. Visit the Colour event page for more details.  

As per the terms and conditions of the Dine & Discover NSW vouchers, you may redeem one voucher per day at Newcastle Museum.  
Multiple vouchers can be used towards the one booking, or transaction (yet cannot be from the same person due to the voucher conditions). For example, if you are booking for a group of eight people, you would select two x ‘Discover Voucher’ tickets to add to your cart. Two people within your group will need to present one Discover NSW voucher each on entry at the Museum.  

  1. To book, go to the Colour event page and select the ‘Book Now’ button on the right hand side. You will be redirected to our ticketing agent, Try Booking for Colour.

Bookings are essential and can be made through the website. At the time of booking online, visitors must select the ‘Dine & Discover’ ticket type and progress through the transaction process. At the checkout page, the total cost will be reduced to $0, with a $25 discount showing.  
You will be required to show your booking confirmation AND your Dine & Discover NSW Voucher to staff on entry at the Museum. The Dine & Discover Voucher will be scanned at point of entry.  

On the day of your booking, make your way to the Newcastle Museum Hook Door entry (off Workshop Way) and present the following: 

  1. Try Booking confirmation for Colour  
  2. Digital or printed Discover NSW voucher/s  

Staff will then scan and submit your voucher/s for redemption through the Service NSW Business app. 

If for some reason you have misplaced or since the time of booking used your Discover NSW voucher, you will need to forfeit your booking for Colour.  

All bookings for Newcastle Museum are made online. No bookings are possible onsite at the counter.  

If you cancel your booking prior to the experience your Discover NSW voucher will still be available for use, as it would not have been scanned/redeemed at Newcastle Museum. 

As per the terms and conditions of the Dine & Discover NSW vouchers, if you use a voucher on an experience valued less than $25, neither you nor the business will receive the left-over amount. For example, if you were to select one child ticket for $5 and one adult ticket for $10, you would not receive the $10 balance back.  
We encourage you to plan ahead and share your Newcastle Museum experience with friends or family, with four tickets on the family pass!
