The Warmest of Welcomes to Millom Heritage and Arts Centre!
Based in Millom’s beautifully restored railway station, our Heritage and Arts Centre (formerly called Millom Discovery Centre) is almost fifty years old. From small beginnings our centre has evolved into a flourishing hub at the heart of community life in this small town situated on Cumbria’s beautiful coast. Our accredited museum celebrates a rich, varied and multi-layered past, ranging from the Bronze Age through industrial renaissance and subsequent decline to those bygone days when sailing ships crowded the harbour. And don’t forget the hidden role played by RAF Millom during those dark days of WW2!
Our much-acclaimed and popular museum is open throughout the year Monday to Saturday and occasional Sundays during the summer season. Getting here couldn’t be easier. By train there are hourly services from both north and south and Millom is signposted on the A595 if you’re travelling by car. Entry is free, but we welcome donations which are used for ongoing investment and community support.
‘What a wonderful tribute to your wonderful town! We loved everything about it. Informative and full of history. Thank you and well done!’ Just one great comment from a visiting family. There’s so much to see and do in our Heritage and Arts Centre – and with interactive displays and a model railway, we haven’t forgotten the kids! It doesn’t end there because we also offer a genealogy service, linked to inscriptions on the graves from all our local churches.
So browse our website and then visit us on your travels through this little-known and unexplored part of Cumbria – we guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
