Doesn't take long to complete a visit but well worth it. Visit the church opposite afterwards. Walking distance from centre of Bamburgh.

This is a super well designed museum. The exhibits are interesting and those staffing the museum are very enthusiastic and proud of their place. It is free to enter. Also go across to the church after your visit.

Although this is a very small Museum, run by the RNLI, and devoted to telling the story of Grace Darling, it is very interesting and informative.
