  • Located close to Lancaster train station, has really intersting exhibits and aimed at a niche audience 
  • Interesting history on the life of a fishing folk and the industry and technology transformation such as railways and canal network 
  • A superb way to learn about the slave trade and all sorts of port-related things. Really interesting information.

  • “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.
