This splendid museum is housed in the former Town Hall of the historic cultural city of Lancaster, an elegant Georgian building constructed in 1781-3 to the designs of Major Thomas Jarrett and Thomas Harrison.

The Museum itself was founded in 1923 and its newly presented collections illustrate the rich history and archaeology of the city of Lancaster, the most northerly and rural part of Lancashire, from the Romans to the present day.

It hosts a wonderful collection of portraits and landscapes on display. It features regularly changing exhibitions, and a programme of fun events and activities for families. There is also a giftshop
