Welcome to North Lincolnshire Museum

Welcome to North Lincolnshire Museum

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'.

Climb the stairs to delight in the treasures of our new 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.

Courtyard Cafe

1950's inspired cafe offers visitors a range of hot and cold snacks and drinks located within our courtyard garden area. We also offer a takeaway lunch time service.
