Who is the LNALS?

Who we are

Louth Naturalists' Antiquarian and Literary Society is an organisation established in Louth almost 140 years ago, later becoming a charity and a company running our local independent museum.

Louth Museum is run entirely by volunteers, and the governance of the society relies on the board of volunteer directors responsible for all aspects of our association's many activities. Members are a crucial part of LNALS and have been our lifeblood since the launch of the society.

Registered Charity Number: 1145436
