Visit North Lincolnshire Museum

To follow any changes to this service, visit the Council Service Updates page.

Coronavirus update: Please check with the Museum to see if the events listed are going ahead. 

You may book to visit the museum, on the hour,  10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm and 2pm. In between those times, walk ups are welcome at the museum, but if you walk up on the hour (as above) you may have to wait around 10 mins to gain entry if someone has previously booked.

If you need to use the lift for access needs you need to book a 3pm lift slot. This is because we have a one-way system in operation for Covid-19 safety reasons, which cannot be accomplished if using the lift. The lift slot gives you sole access to the museum to achieve this. This needs to be booked a minimum of two hours in advance of your visit.

North Lincolnshire Museum along with Normanby Hall Country Park is operated by North Lincolnshire Council.
