Guisborough Museum

Welcome to Guisborough Museum


Opened in 1989 Guisborough Museum is a charming Olde Worlde Town Museum packed with memorabilia and exhibitions of past times.

Housed in three adjoining rooms within the old stable block behind Sunnyfield House, Guisborough Museum tells the story of this ancient market town. Peer into the windows of our old Pawnbroker’s Shop and Chemists, and take a look at the old Town Stocks. Our very popular Railway Exhibition with its scale model of the old stations also includes rare photographs exclusive to Guisborough Museum. Exhibits from last century’s school days, colourful model houses, and records of those involved in World Wars – all these will bring back memories for many visitors. Children can also enjoy a fun quiz provided by the museum.

New displays are prepared every year, so there is always something more to see. 2023’s new displays will feature a range of topics from the Romans to ‘Your Old School house’.

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.

We look forward to welcoming you.
