When in Fleetwood schedule a visit to the Fleetwood museum


The museum began in the early 1970s as a local history collection in the old Dock Street Library. Eventually permanent showcases were built and The Margaret Rowntree Room, named after Fleetwood's first female mayor - was established. In 1982, as part of Maritime England Year, the ground floor and basement of the Dock Street Library were converted into Fleetwood Museum. The main emphasis here was maritime history. In 1991 the museum was moved to its present site at 6-7 Queen's Terrace.

Fleetwood Museum

The story of Fleetwood from its Victorian origins, fishing heritage and much more! Fleetwood Museum is the Fylde Coast’s only accredited museum, based in the town’s grade two listed former Customs House. Our museum explores the history of Fleetwood and includes a Victorian boarding house recreation, a Salt Mine, deep sea trawler displays and much more.


There is also the nationally significant historic fishing vessel ‘Harriet’ – which definitely has the wow factor! We have exciting new exhibitions for 2023 including ‘Sand to Sea’ about the inshore fishing industries and ‘Nothing to Now’ our new introduction space.
