The City Museum is in Lancaster's former town hall, an elegant Georgian building constructed in 1781-3 to the designs of Major Thomas Jarrett and Thomas Harrison. Here you can discover more about Lancaster’s past from the Romans to the present day.
The museum itself was founded in 1923 and its collections illustrate the history and archaeology of the city of Lancaster. It is also home to the King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment Museum, which traces Lancaster's regimental history from 1680 onwards.
See the wonderful collection of fine art, porcelain, and items from every-day life.
No toilets onsite For more information, please head on over to the City Museum Page on Visit Lancaster.
The Learning from the Past exhibition brings together our project outputs to tell a story about the efforts for peace and internationalism made by people across Europe during the interwar years and the impact of this shared heritage on young Europeans today.
Developed in collaboration with Lancaster City Museum, the exhibition features digitally displayed historical exhibits, as well as key heritage stories that emerged from the project and a range of new, original artwork from poetry to film to painting.
