The Dock Museum

North Road, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, LA14 2PW

Barrow-in-Furness transformed in the 19th and 20th century from small farming community to one of Britain’s most formidable ship builders and The Dock Museum tells the tale of the metamorphosis. The museum is built over an original Victorian graving dock and a wonderland of exhibits, ship models, computer interactives and films make this place come alive. The social history of Barrow is also explored alongside its transformation to industrial hub. But there’s plenty more here too. Don’t miss the Viking Gallery with its Furness Hoard of coins which were unearthed in the area as recently as 2011. There is a running diary of special events at the museum plus outdoor playground for the kids and a landscaped waterfront location to stroll along once you’re done inside.
