Friendly staff greeted us at this free museum. It's a great exhibition - well thought out with a few things to keep kids occupied and a short film. A beautiful view from the viewpoint too. It all helps to support the RNLI.

This was a joy that mustn't be missed. The staff were well informed and obviously love what they do. It is very moving and you can easily shed a tear. You must link this with a visit to the beautiful church across the road too.

I visited this small but informative museum some time ago but it had tonnes of information and facts about Grace's exploits and the acts that made her famous, Loved seeing the boat and other artefacts associated with her. I bought postcards and a copy of the Grace Darling song so that I could teach my children in school about it.... More

I teach the children at my school the story of Grace Darling so felt humbled to be able to see her actual boat inside the museum. It beggers belief how she helped the survivors in such terrible conditions in such a boat. The museum is a great little tribute to her, with lots of things to look at and read... More

A fascinating Museum and information Centre that has interactive displays and feature videos with a gift shop and a wonderful viewing lounge with the Church and fields leading to the sand dunes and beach (one of the best in the country) and the sea.

I have been a fan of Grace Darling since the first time I visited the old museum 41 years ago. The museum is always on my list when I return to my beloved North east for frequent holidays. The new updated premises have made it more hands on and interesting for the children. The small shop provided colouring books and... More

What a hero Grace Darling turned out to be, I hadn't heard anything of her previous to our visit here but after hearing the story and reading the information along side all the items on display was heart warming stuff. I came away with a lump in my throat at how a young girl was so brave. Definitely worth a... More
