  • Very interesting little museum, good displays and information, hadn't realized Lancaster was such an important port in the past. Staff really helpful and friendly. 
  • Came on this little treasure on the heritage weekend, entrance was free, what a shame no one was visiting, we were the first visitors and that was 1pm. It was a lovely museum, very well set out, well ...  more »
  • Not very many boats to see, only a couple of small sailing ships. Good how they explain about Morecambe bay, and the cockling horse cart, good section on how to do knotts, some good films to see also ...  more »

  • “A little gem” Situated, unsurprisingly, on the quayside in Lancaster the maritime museum is an unassuming lgass block on a larger, older, warehouse. It hides itself well and many of the residents walk past it and probably forget it is there, which is a great shame. Like most museums the maritime Museum makes as much effort as possible to engage the visitors and show history in the best manner. With limited funds this is normally very hard but the Maritime Museum have achieved marvels. it is a little gem and well worth a visit. Lancaster has a strong maritime history and links to the Slave Trade, the Titanic Disaster and many other maritime events that formed the United Kingdom and world trade. An added bonus is the free entry for residents of Lancaster and Morecambe. Visited August 2014
  • A very pleasant couple of hours. Very well laid out with plenty of displays to interest a family. Good cafe with access by lift from the ground floor. There is a small cinema screen on the upper floor (also lift access) with a short film about shipping, slavery and trade.
  • A nice clean building to explore. It's a bit limited, but quite nice. Lots of words, minimal exhibits. But I still found it an interesting enough read and visit.
  • A fascinating slice of local history. Surprisingly elaborate displays.
