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 2012 award.
On Saturday October 26th 2013 Louth Museum not only closed its doors for its winter break but also bid farewell to our manager Geoff Hill. Volunteers who work at the museum gathered to say “goodbye” to Geoff and his wife Margaret and to wish them well for their future.
Geoff joined the team at Louth Museum in 2005 when the museum reopened to the public after a programme of extension and refurbishment. He has been a fountain of knowledge in the museum, calmly organising the volunteers and he ensured the smooth running of the museum for the last eight years. Geoff and Margaret have worked tirelessly to keep the museum interesting and together they have organised special displays and events which have been a great hit with the public.
Louth Museum will re-open its doors for 2014 season at the beginning of April 2014. In a break with tradition the museum will also be open on Sunday 1st December 2013 for Louth’s Christmas Fayre and also on Friday 15th November 2013 and Friday 13th December 2013 for pre-booked research sessions in the museum’s well-stock library.
"… Lots of information that cannot be found elsewhere. Very helpful, knowledgeable staff a big thumbs up!! …" (June 2013)
"… This was excellent, the lady volunteer was so good with our kids and a total credit to the place. Spent more time here than we thought and would tell anyone to visit it. The girls both played the activities that the museum has and both really enjoyed them. A real credit to Louth and something to be very proud of! …" (May 2013)
"…This great little museum is well worth a visit! It is only a few minutes’ walk from the main market square … The Museum is well laid out and tells many of the stories of the town in an attractive way – the great flood of 1920, the ghost of the green lady, to name but two. … Friendly volunteers were on hand when I visited who were happy to chat about Louth and its history in an informative and relaxed way. All in all a very good experience. …" (April 2013)
