Hartlepool Arts and Museum Service

Hartlepool Arts and Museums Service began in 1920 with the opening of the Gray Art Gallery & Museum, the building and the original collection of paintings given by Captain W. Gray, as a thank-offering for the safe return of his son from the 1914-18 War.

Since then the collections have been built upon areas of social and maritime history, Asian art, natural history and decorative arts. The collection includes fishing cobles, a merman, a lighthouse and Japanese warrior armour. There is a strong fine art collection including works by James Carmichael, Lucien Freud, Basil Beattie, James Clarke and Frank Henry Mason.
