Located in the heart of the town, adjoining the library, Immingham Museum is a small, independent museum with charitable status.
This family friendly museum showcases the town’s local history with a range of exhibitions including:
- Immingham’s connection the Mayflower Pilgrims and their dramatic escape from the shores of Immingham in 1608
- The history of Immingham Dock, which was opened by King George V in 1912 and how it has grown to the largest port by tonnage in the UK
- The influence of the Great Central Railway
- An extensive working model railway display on the first floor.
Many of the displays feature memorabilia, photographs and documents along with room settings including the 1940’s, Victorian and Georgian and a grocery and chemist store. There is a rolling programme of changing exhibitions each year.
The museum is an accredited through Arts Council England’s Museum Accreditation, a national benchmark for museums.
Entry is free of charge but donations are most welcome as the museum is run entirely by volunteers and through charitable donations.
Accessibility: Whilst much of the museum is wheelchair accessible, regrettably the upper gallery is only accessible via stairs and no lift is available.
Groups welcome by prior arrangement.
