Louth Museum is an award winning visitor attraction in the historic market town of Louth, nestling at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds. There are four galleries, a library and a gift shop.

Louth Museum was refitted in 2006, celebrated its centenary in 2010, has won four Renaissance Heritage awards and the Lincolnshire Heritage Museum of the Year.

Louth Museum is now closed until April 2019

Louth museum is now closed for the winter and will re-open again for our 2019 season on:
Wednesday 3rd April 2019 until Saturday 26th October 2019

Although the museum is closed to the public during the winter many of our volunteers will be busy working away behind the scenes. The museum is deep-cleaned, the displays are altered and our exhibitions for the 2019 season are being created.

For the 2019 season our exhibitions are:

"100 years of the RAF around Louth" - Wednesday 3rd April to Saturday 1st June

"Local Paintings" - Wednesday 26th June to Saturday 31st August

"Windmills around Louth" - Wednesday 18th September to Saturday 26th October
