Cottage Museum

Cottage Museum, Lancaster

Cottage Museum, Lancaster

The wonderfully atmospheric Cottage Museum, facing Lancaster Castle and just a short walk from the Judges Lodgings, is part of a 1739 house, subdivided in about 1820 and furnished as an artisan's house of that date.

The museum provides an intimate glimpse of early Victorian life in a tiny and intriguing 18th century cottage spread over five floors.

For more information, please head on over to the Cottage Museum Page on Visit Lancaster.
