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.

The Louth Museum is NOW OPEN for its 2016 season.

Our second exhibition is now open until the 2nd July this year:

Pubs and Breweries of Louth: Past and Present

25th May to 20th August 2016

The exhibition looks at the history and stories from Louth’s bygone taverns, inns and pubs and will concentrate on the ones shown on the 1847 Panorama of Louth painted by William Brown. Back in the day when Brown was painting the Panorama there were over 52 pubs in Louth, one for each week of the year!

Good News, Bad News.

The good news is that 'Pubs and Breweries of Louth' Exhibition has been extended till Saturday 20 August due to popular public interest.

The bad news is that unfortunately the Brewer is not able to be at the museum tomorrow Saturday 25th June so our ‘Meet the Brewer’ event has been cancelled.

We're sorry if you're disappointed - we are too.

But come along anyway and browse the information about the 83 pubs of Louth on our interactive display. And perhaps add some memories of your own.
