Lancaster Maritime Museum

Discover Lancaster and Morecambe's Golden Age and rich maritime past in two fine Georgian quayside buildings.

Enter the world of Lancaster's merchants, shipbuilders and sailors, and learn about Morecambe Bay's fishing tradition, busy tourist trade and the perils of crossing the sands. Further displays explore the ecology and natural history of the area. Climb aboard the 'steam packet' and learn about the Lancaster Canal. The museum hosts a changing programme of exhibitions.
