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.

Cadwell Park 80th Anniversary Exhibition

Wednesday 16th July to Saturday 6th September

Louth Museum – where else you can see a boneshaker and a superbike!

Louth Museum proudly presents an exhibition celebrating the 80th Anniversary of Cadwell Park race track.

Local racing legend Neil Tuxworth will open the exhibition at 10.00 a.m. on Wednesday July 16th.

Visitors to the Cadwell Park exhibition at Louth Museum will have the rare opportunity to view unique photographs, silverware, programmes and other memorabilia about this legendary local racing venue. You can follow the history of Cadwell Park through the decades, from the early beginnings of the Louth & District Motorcycle club, the development of the track, the racing stars and spills through to today’s superbikes!

We look forward to welcoming everyone to this unique exhibition. Normal museum entrance fees will apply.

Cadwell Park memorabilia wanted!

Do you have any memorabilia or memories about Cadwell Park which you would like to share with us as part of our exhibition - then we would be happy to hear from you?

Some recent comments on Trip Advisor about Louth Museum:

“This smallish museum in Louth has a wonderful and surprisingly large, collection of artefacts. We especially enjoyed the upstairs display about the flood of 1920. The volunteers were extremely helpful and informative …” (June 2014)

“Something for everyone at this most interesting museum, extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff and well presented exhibits.” (June 2014)

“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)
