This free museum next to the maritime museum has some interesting exhibits but is probably of more interest if you are a local and want to know Hartlepool's past connections. Having said that, it is like a Tardis when you go into because it opens...More

Plenty of varied and well set out exhibits together with what appeared to be facility for travelling temporary exhibitions, good selection of local nostalgia and information

I will be honest, I wasn't expecting Hartlepool to have as much history as it does. Museum was very interesting, particularly the articles relating to the bombardment of Hartlepool during World War 1. Well worth a visit

Really interesting displays and very informative on the shelling of Hartlepool in 1914. Was also surprised by the Egyptian artefacts on display.

This well-laid-out museum reflects Hartlepool's maritime history, with ships, exhibitions and a good cafe! The staff are well-informed and access is easy. There is a large carpark and the museum is well-signed from the dual carriageway.

There were some very interesting bits of local history on display, not least the story of Hartlepool being bombarded by the German Navy in the First World War. Very good to combine with the Naval Museum.
