The museum is worth a visit, and you will learn a lot about the history of the town which has both naval and industrial histories of some significance.

Has a fair bit of info but would have been dissapointed if had to pay to go into. Quite a lot to see but not a lot of interactive items. The museum doesnr really flow. You go from one era to another. Worth a visit...More

A smallish museum but with artefacts dating back to the Neolithic period. It certainly gives an indication of the long period of history that Hartlepool has lived through. Free parking on site.

very much enjoyed looking around the exhibit although it is more geared towards kids. Not being from England I found it fascinating to learn about Hartlepool's history & the bombardment. So sad to read all of that but very educational.

Our age ranged from 4 to 74 and all enjoyed the museum, plenty to look at and the men enjoyed seeing the working marine engines. A pity its quite expensive to go on HMS Trimcomalee, other wise think we would have loved to.

Loads to see and read about, take your glasses and allow a couple of hours to read everything and see all the displays. The 'Food through the ages' was particularly interesting.

A free museum attached to the RN museum. A host of interesting information about Hartlepool and it's maritime past. Don't forget to chip in a donation.

This establishment is part of the historic quayside complex - it is the part that is free to access. It is better laid out than the old building that was its home for many years. It presents a modern approach to museum culture - it...More
