  • This is a fascinating museum showing the impressive maritime history in Barrow. Great for kids with a good playground in the grounds. Brilliant exhibitions and really well designed. Admission is free. We really enjoyed our visit so made a donation. If your in the area give the museum a visit.
  • Very interesting. Good exhibits. A nice section for the kids too.
  • Cafe is worth a visit and a quick walk round the dock museum. The outdoor play area for children is ok but dated. Requires a little bit of an upgrade
  • Great little museum in what is otherwise a dismal town. Well worth a visit. The static displays about the history of Barrow in iron, steel and then shipbuilding are really very interesting and illuminating. Most small town museums like this are rubbish, but this one stands out.
  • Medium size museum with tons of information and incredible model boats. There is a small art gallery on the lower levels too. It's free to enter but you should really give them a small donation. Well worth a visit
