Lancaster City Council runs four fascinating and individually unique museums in the city: the City Museum (which also contains the King’s Own Royal Regiment Museum), the Maritime Museum and the Cottage Museum.

2023 marks one hundred years of Lancaster City Museums’ collection. To mark our centenary, we will be presenting a packed programme of events and exhibitions to really get visitors to the very heart of our collection.

We are happy to arrange access to the collection for research purposes, but please contact us first to make an appointment. Please also note that we do not take object donations via our front desks. Please contact us to discuss donating to the museums.

See our visitor website for much more information about our museums, our collection and our programme.
