Immingham Museum

Immingham Museum

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.  

*Regrettably the museum is currently closed due to the COVID pandemic. Please check their website before visiting to check if it has reopened*
