This is a superb museum with a far greater, and more impressive collection of artefacts than its modest size may suggest.

Well presented displays take the visitor deep into Grace Darling's world, and the printed information adds vital detail.

Further insights and artefacts are held in slide-out drawers beneath the display cases, and are well worth exploring.

I spent over an hour slowly exploring, reading and absorbing, yet still didn't see or read everything. (Next time I'll visit earlier in the day, and not an hour before closing...)

Take your time, and let yourself be immersed in this astonishing and moving heroic event.

Be sure to watch the short but powerful film, projected directly above the sturdy coble used in the rescue.

Simply seeing this boat up close is quite something in itself.

A delightful guide, and her warm welcome and genuine enthusiasm for Grace Darling's story topped off an extremely enriching and engaging visit.

Go to the Grace Darling museum as it offers the story of how she helped save sailors during a storm., Linked to the RNLI so well worth your visit and donation. And is also free entry

We were blown away with this incredible museum, the staff were so warm and welcoming. The story of this incredible and very brave young lady was told very well indeed. We loved the video and the interactive displays. We came away feeling inspired by her story and humbled by her actions that day.

Visited today. This is a most moving and well presented exposition of heroism on the part of a young girl, Grace Darling, who along with her father, saved the lives of nine survivors of the ship 'Forfarshire' which was wrecked on the rocks of the Farne islands during a hurricane storm on 7th Septmeber 1838.
Letters and artefacts from her life and times, including interactive displays make this a must go visitor experience in Bamburgh.
I could say more but no spoilers from me ! Just go and experience it for yourselves.
By the way,entry is free and the museum is staffed by volunteers. Donations are welcomed and help the heroic service our RNLI provide in the protection of all lives in danger at sea. This young woman is at the heart of this selfless service.

Called in on Tuesday to be greeted by a lovely lady advising us if the museum & where the homes she lived & died in could be located.

Thought the museum was well laid out, very informative & the video depicting the rescue was very thought provoking as well as demonstrating Grace’s immense courage & bravery, how she managed to keep that boat steady in those conditions was miraculous! Wonderful museum and a thoroughly enjoyable visit.

This is a great museum. It is free. It is a lot bigger insifde, over two floors, than it looks from the outside. The story of Grace Darling is told in numerous ways, including a great video production. The museum sits opposite the Church of St Aidan which provides a tribute to Grace and a monument in the graveyard. It represents a lovely collection of related attractions. BUT - Grace's father was as heroic as Grace but gets very little recognition (the museum does reflect on it). Is it because Grace, as a female, was not expected to be so heroic, whilst her father merely did what was expected of a male? I think, in the current environment, there would be more of an equal representation. Well worth a visit.

I had forgotten the story of Grace Darling which I can only vaguely remember from my childhood. The whole story of her heroism during a terrible storm is brought to life.
