Guisborough Museum

Redcar and Cleveland Visual Border

Welcome to Guisborough Museum

Guisborough Museum tells the story of the ancient town. Find out how the Priory was built nine hundred years ago. Peer into the windows of the old Pawnbroker’s and Chemist’s shops, and take a look at the old Town Stocks.

The Railway Exhibition is very popular with its scale model of the old station and rare photographs exclusive to Guisborough Museum. Exhibits from last century’s school days, Victorian toys, exquisite model houses, and records of those involved in World Wars – all these will bring back memories for many visitors.

New displays are prepared each year, so there is always something new to see as well as our Museum Quiz, free for children to have a go.

Our Archives, housed in neighbouring Sunnyfield House, provide a large resource of further photographs and records of Guisborough social history.

Guisborough Museum is entirely volunteer run, and we preserve much of the town’s heritage and we look forward to welcoming you.
