Zetland Lifeboat Museum and Redcar Heritage Centre

The museum uses lifelike figures and models to bring to life the story of sea rescues on the north east coast.

Upstairs is an extensive display of lifesaving equipment, past and present, and a reconstruction of a fisherman's sitting room.

The Laurie Pickett Gallery displays photographs and postcards of old Redcar and her lifeboat crews, highlighting the town's history as a seaside attraction from Victorian times.
