A great use of this historic building overlooking the Tyne. The exhibitions change frequently so it’s pot luck if it’s your taste - but the views of the river are worth the visit anyway. The shop sells the usual museum/ gallery type souvenirs; the cafe...More

Lovely restored flour mill, but exhibits could be improved but having more exhibits or local art maybe in stairwells. Great shop with good gifts and nice for events. Worth a little visit. Exhibits change regularly.

I revisited The Baltic today and was impressed by the changing exhibits. The displays are often challenging and thought provoking and don’t always appeal. However when they do they are a treat. The views from this dramatic converted flour mill are worth coming to see...More
