A bit disappointed really overall. The exhibits that are there are good, just a bit limited and not enough given all the history of the port. Can be done in 15 minutes. Good extra input from the friendly guide.

A very interesting museum run by enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff. Gives an insight into the rise and fall of Maryport and its important past as a coal port and a shipyard. Worth a visit.

Small museum close to the harbour with exhibits explaining Maryport's past as one of the main ports on the West coast. The importance of the railway transporting coal from Newcastle for transfer by sea. Very helpful curator, and some wonderful maritime paintings.
