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

An excellent museam with many interesting exibits and features. It is particularly suited for children of all ages. It is amazing to think that someone a small as Grace Darling obviously was that she was still able to row the boat exibited in rough seas.

Several artifacts from the Darling family and... More

This museum is free which is great and the staff were friendly and the gift shop was quite good but however the museum didn't have much to show and it is very cramped and there isn't much room if it is very busy.

Don't miss this gem of a museum when in Bamburgh. Friendly staff very knowledgable of the subject, and raises money for the RNLI. Win win I think.
