  • Fascinating things to see. Laid out within the old Customs House and part of an old Warf warehouse on the quayside.  more »

  • What a great place to see! I absolutely loved it! I didn’t realize there was so much maritime history in this city! Very pretty. I really enjoyed the slavery exhibit. Some museums gloss over that bit ...  more »
  • Museum is great for a few hours of entertainment. Unfortunately the member of staff we encountered on the day was highly rude to my eldest child and myself. Visit was very rushed and left thinking it was about to close to discover there was 45mins before it did. Daughter was very upset as she wanted to do the quiz they had and was told she didnt have time to do it. Even though we had found all the answers so would have taken a few mins to complete. Hence why we thought it was about to close too. Wish I had checked the time before leaving.
  • Kids liked it. Free of charge. Nice to see some history
  • Brilliant day out for all the family
  • “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
  • Great, worth a visit, if a little small.
