The museum is now operated by Fleetwood Museum Trust. See the Fleetwood Museum website for more information.

Overlooking the beautiful Morecambe Bay this friendly museum explores the story of Fleetwood from past to present.

It is housed in the old custom house, a Grade II listed building designed by the famous British architect Decimus Burton, who designed and began building the new planned seaside town and northern point on the London to NW rail line.

Visiting the museum, you'll find out about the Victorian idealism of Fleetwood's founder, Sir Peter Hesketh Fleetwood.

You'll also discover more about Fleetwood's heyday as an important fishing port of both deep sea and inshore fisheries as well as one of the best Victorian seaside resorts. Learn about its cargo trade, ferry services, lifeboats and brave lifeboat men, the docks, the invaluable and heroic role trawler men played during the wars, the chemical giant ICI and much more.
