Interesting museum telling the story of the local heroine. Also a base for promoting RNLI. Well worth supporting.

My daughter and I did a quick visit while staying locally. The museum is quite modern, but contains some excellent exhibits explaining Graces life and history. However, the highlight was the church and graveyard across the road which contains the Darling memorials along with many other sights. Overall a thought provoking and interesting hour

This museum is free yet has one of the best displays I have ever seen. Up to date videos and all sorts of artifacts told the story. It is hard not to be moved by the bravery of Grace Darling, but also all the men and women who are part of the RLNI today.

Following my review of the Farne Islands boat trips, I recommended readers to visit this museum as a follow up to the Grace Darling story. The boat trip takes you to the sights of Grace's rescue mission, and then the museum fills in all the blanks. Considering the admission is free, the exhibits are well displayed in a modern fashion...

Very impressed, interactive, informative, and FREE. Obviously they'd like you to give donation. This is a truly great story and well worth the visit. 10/10

This is a small museum which tells you the story of Grace Darling but it is limited in the displays provided; it is however interesting and supports the great RNLI. Younger children would not find a lot of interest.

Great little museum, a very smart building and all free! Tells you about the life of the brave Grace Darling and gives you a insight of the RNLI. I recommend watching all the videos and taking your time to look at the smart computers showing you the light house and Grace and Williams route to save the ship. Up the... More
