21st Century virtual reality tech meets 18th Century innovation as Stephenson’s world famous Rocket returns to its roots.

Join us in Newcastle, the home of the original locomotive that defined a new era in transport during the 1800’s, to see the Rocket back at its birthplace.

Using a mixture of virtual and augmented reality, Northern tech masters Hedgehog Lab will recreate a fully immersive and memorable experience of the original Rocket.

Get ready to step on board at Discovery Museum!

Travel back to 1829 via virtual reality to experience the sight and sound of the early steam age as Rocket is digitally brought back to life in this fully immersive and memorable experience.
