Recently visited the museum in Scunthorpe with a friend, what an interesting place loads of stuff about the history, geology, industry and culture. Well presented and displayed in such a small museum. Would like to have stayed longer.

I like to pop in a few times a year. The Roman floor, skeleton and the long boat never loose their appeal. There are permanent exhibits, local artifacts and room set ups. The world war two shelter is wonderful and the rooms through the decades...More

It’s many years since I visited the Museum and how it has changed.I was pleasantly surprised by all the exhibits and spent a morning viewing them.If you haven’t been in a while treat yourself, it’s worth it.
