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.

Louth Museum is now closed for the winter season

Our volunteers will be hard at work behind the scenes to ensure that when we re-open in April 2015 for the summer season we will have a wide and varied range of exhibitions and special events for you - so watch this space for more information over the winter months.

Louth Museum re-opens on Wednesday 1st April 2015 so see you then!

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)
