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

It was very interesting to see how the Darling family lived, the museum showed that their life was full and they, though quite isolated, learned social etiquette and had a good education. I liked to see the clothes they wore, the books they learned from and the boat that was used for the rescue of the survivors of the Forfarshire.

We visited for an hour today and found the small museum a fitting tribute to the heroics of the Darlings, as well as an insight into their daily lives as a lighthouse keeping family. The museum is free but I would encourage everyone to make a donation or spend in the gift shop. ...and pleasant little surprise hidden just around... More

One of our most respected historical figures here in the North East and this museum takes you on a very informative journey through her life. Lots of exhibits from the life of Grace including the boat Grace and her father rowed out to rescue sailors from the Forfarshire.

For such a small person, she was so full of bravery. I was in awe as I read the story of how such a small person could even contemplate betting in a boat in such dreadful conditions not just once but twice. Staggering and moving. You must visit the RNLI lifeboat station in Seahouses which operates the lifeboat called Grace... More
