Full steam ahead

2nd February 1996 at 00:00
"Turbinia", the world's first steam-turbine propelled vessel built 100 years ago and once the fastest vessel on the ocean, is going back on public display at the Discovery Museum, Newcastle, at the end of March. Once a gallery has been built around her, she will be the centrepiece of the museum. Other exhibitions at Tyne and Wear museums include: Pterosaurs! Rulers of Jurassic Skies, which runs at the Hancock Museum, Barras Bridge, until October 31, and Time Quest at the Barbour Archaeology Research Centre, Arbeia Roman Fort, South Shields.
