A Journey of Discovery in a History Tardis

Louth Museum is one of the main visitor attractions in the historic market town of Louth, nestling at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

There are four galleries, a classroom/library and a gift shop. Louth Museum was refitted throughout in traditional style in 2006, celebrated its centenary in 2010, and has won four Renaissance Heritage awards and the prestigious Lincolnshire Heritage Museum of the Year award.

The Museum is open for the 2014 season.

We are open for Easter:

  • Easter Sunday - 1pm to 5pm
  • Easter Monday - 1pm to 5pm
  • Tuesday 22nd April - Closed
  • Wednesday 23rd April - Open as normal

Wear your Easter Bonnet for free entry into the museum and a surprise gift.

Our first exhibition of the season is entitled “Mrs Cuppleditch’s Hats”

This exhibition consists of 60 hats worn by Mrs Mary Cuppleditch when she was Mayoress of Louth from 1978 to 1979. Did she say to her husband George, when he told her he was going to be Mayor, that she couldn't possibly be seen in the same hat at every event they attended? The hats range from summer straws to winter furs, some with designer labels.

Some recent comments on Trip Advisor about Louth Museum:

“Glad I took my French guests - actually the Museum was not really open but there was a book sale so we slipped in......
the volunteer staff were so helpful and explained Brown's Panorama (despite our limited French). Note there are laminated guides in several languages if you need. I am a Louth resident and I have visited several times - I always find something to interest me both in the regular displays and at special events and exhibitions. It is always good value. My friends want to go back next time they visit.

Thank you to the volunteers - it is a brilliant not so little museum.” (March 2014)
