  • Small, informative, hands on for the kids. Great views and some good ideas for places of interest relating to Grace Darling to visit in Bamburgh.
  • Very interesting museum. No public toilets though? There are public toilets close by but they are up the street and on the other side of the road. My husband is disabled so it wasn't easy. Why install a brand new wheelchair lift within the building without a disabled toilet. Very disappointing.
  • Small is better! This museum tells the story of Grace Darling, with exhibits from her life, her famous rescue and features the coble that was used by her nearly 200 years ago. Located in a beautiful village with the incredible castle just a few hundred yards away.
  • Really good exhibit and friendly staff.
