Overview

The RNLI Grace Darling Museum tells the story of Grace and her father's heroic rescue of nine survivors of the wreck of the SS Forfarshire in September 1838. The museum is a small site, with a stunning view from the first floor. The main gallery includes the boat Grace and her father rowed to the rescue. RNLI Grace Darling Museum is a family-friendly site with trails, activities and temporary exhibitions during school holidays. We look forward to welcoming you.

Really enjoyed our short visit to this small, well maintained museum. Amazing feat of bravery. Make sure to visit the church and graveyard across the road.
