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 Great War (1914-1918) was the 'war to end all wars'. It left Louth and the surrounding area families without fathers, husbands, brothers and sons. To mark a century since the Great War ended, we invite you to contribute to our online Book of Remembrance. Visitors to the Museum will also be able to sign a Book of Remembrance and write their family stories or thoughts on any aspect of The Great War.
Remembrance means different things to everyone and however we choose to remember, it is vitally important that we continue remember those who made ultimate sacrifice as the terrible events of the Great War begin to fade away through the generations. Our Book of Remembrance aims to ensure that the memories of those who made the final sacrifice and those who suffered family loss will never be forgotten.
For its second exhibition of the year, Louth Museum is delighted to have secured the loan of 'Lincolnshire Voices from the Great War', an exhibition that has already proved a popular attraction at other county venues. It features the personal stories and experiences of Lincolnshire people both on the battlefield and the home front. It highlights the contribution that our county made to the war effort with the aviation industry (Lincoln was the largest aircraft building centre in the world) and the development and production of the first tanks; the changing roles of women; the care of the wounded, and much more. Material – photos, diaries and personal testimony – has been sourced from the Lincolnshire Archives, private collections and the Imperial War Museum.
