The Dock Museum is built over an original Victorian Graving Dock, this modern Museum tells the history of Barrow-in-Furness. Discover the remarkable story of Barrow's rapid growth from a small farming village in the early nineteenth century, to a town famed throughout the world for its industrial production and innovation. Exhibits include our spectacular ship models, computer interactives, film show, `Shipbuilders to the World´ and the social history of Barrow. A vibrant exhibitions and events programme, playground, walkways and a landscaped waterfront location make the Dock Museum a wonderful place to visit.
