A small museum, that is quickly visited, but comprehensive in knowledge. The exhibits could do with more lighting as most were difficult to read in subdued light. Graces grave and that of her family lie across the road in the adjacent graveyard.

The museum presents the compelling story of how Grace and her lighthouse keeper father rescued 11 people shipwrecked on the Farne Islands. It includes letters and other memorabilia from the family, all of which added to our understanding of their lives, and their personalities. Four stars rather than 5 as the display cases are very dimly lit (for reasons of... More

Although small, they've done a great job here illustrating the drama of what happened. The lift is good for elderly visitors and there is a nice shop. Church opposite is well worth a visit too.

This is an excellent attraction, friendly and informative staff. Well documented items on display. This tells the story of Grace Darling really well, and would recommend this museum.

Visited here after going around Bamburgh Castle. Very good if small museum with free entry telling the story of Grace Darling. Lots of artefacts to look at, friendly staff & good gift shop and nice panoramic coastal views from the upper floor. Only slight downside was the lighting on some artefacts made them difficult to read and it is quite... More

We visited the Grace Darling Museum whilst in Bamburgh and found it to be very interesting. It is a small museum which tells the story of Grace Darling and her father. The volunteer at the front desk was very knowledgeable and was very helpful. Definitely worth a visit.
