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 for the winter

It will re-open again for our 2018 season on:

Wednesday 4th April 2018 until Saturday 27th October 2018

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 deep-cleaned, displays are altered and our exhibitions for the 2018 season are being created.

Our exhibitions for 2018 will be as follows:

April to June: "Little Carlton: The Mystery in the Marsh"

June to July: "Lincolnshire Voices of the Great War"

August to October: "The Stone-Age in Lincolnshire"

Even though the museum is now closed we will be holding several pre-Christmas Special Events at Louth Museum - so please see below!
