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.
We will be selling a comprehensive selection of books covering local history and more from the museum’s bookshop – perhaps you may find a Christmas present or simply treat yourself to a good read and learn more about Louth!
Although the museum is closed to the public during the winter many of our volunteers are busy working away behind the scenes. The museum is cleaned, displays are altered and our exhibitions for the 2017 season are being created.
The museum will re-open for our 2017 season on Wednesday 5th April until Saturday 28th October.
Our exhibitions for 2017 are as follows:
Wednesday 5th April to Saturday 10th June - Lincoln Longwool Sheep
Wednesday 28th June to Saturday 2nd September - Industries in Louth
Wednesday 13th September to Saturday 28th October - Lincolnshire-made chairs focussing on those made in Louth
Alex is one of Louth Museum’s volunteers and he supports the Museum in a number of capacities including as a tour guide. In ‘Alex’s Corner ’ he will look at some of the Museum’s objects, primarily drawn from the stone-age to the medieval period and examine their significance.
