FREE...what more do you want. Well loads actually, including the latest Viking Hoard found locally! A good cafe, incredibly clean loo and a cinema with local interest films. Well worth a visit.

Excellent display and models, convey the history and 'boom and bust' that afflicted the town. The films are worth the time and effort and do so much to counter the negativity one reads about Barrow. There is a proud history of service to the nation. What a shame a surface ship built in the town, is not preserved alongside the museum.
