Lancaster Maritime Museum is an award-winning museum set within the former Port of Lancaster Custom House. Let us take you on a journey to discover all things nautical relating to the Morecambe Bay area.
We are in a wonderful building to explore, fusing Georgian and Italian design in an architectural landscape built on the wealth of overseas trade, designed by architect Richard Gillow (of the Gillow furniture making family.
Discover the story of the Port of Lancaster through sounds, smells and reconstructions; explore Lancaster’s ’Golden Age’ of trade and prosperity and its connection to the slave trade; uncover the natural and social history of Morecambe Bay.
Our quayside location is close to Lancaster’s other main attractions and a great starting point to explore Millennium Park.
