    Take a walk along the river to the Museum. It is in the old custom house. The installations are very good. The film tells an amazing story of ship building in Lancaster.  more »

  • Kids liked it. Free of charge. Nice to see some history
  • “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
  • Good but slavery exhibition has been closed since the floods.
  • Friendly staff but quite small.
  • 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.
