The Museum of Hartlepool
The Museum of Hartlepool is the finest free show in town and it tells the story of Hartlepool from prehistoric times to the present day.
Located beside Hartlepool Historic Quay, the Museum of Hartlepool features sea monsters, a real ‘fishing coble’ to climb aboard, a Celtic ‘Round House’ building, the first ‘gas illuminated lighthouse’, models, computer interactive displays and the largest exhibit of all – the PSS Wingfield Castle, a fully restored paddle steamer, with the Coble Cafe on board
Voted the ‘most popular new attraction in England’ by the English Tourist Board and winner of the BT North East Award for the ‘Favourite Children’s Visit’, the Museum of Hartlepool is among Britain’s top ten free visitor attractions opened since 1994
The Museum of Hartlepool is open daily from 10.00am to 5.00pm (including Bank Holidays) – we are closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Call to confirm on 01429 860 077
