A great day out for all the family. Discover the stories of North Lincolnshire through many interactive exhibits - become a nature detective in 'Go Wild', step back in time in the Victorian ironstone cottage and relive the 'People's War'.
Take a look inside our Post-War 1950s kitchen and 1960s living room, climb the stairs to delight in the treasures of our Archaeology gallery and the award winning temporary exhibitions.
The museum displays draw on all of these collections, reflecting not only the great changes in the region but also the everyday lives of ordinary people.
After receiving an Arts Council England grant in 2015, we are delighted to open a brand new Post-War gallery, refurbishment to reception, Café and gift shop from 13 February. During the summer time we will also be opening a brand new under-fives room called Dudley's Den.
