About

The Museum of Hartlepool is housed in a purpose-built building adjacent to the National Museum of the Royal Navy. See Hartlepool through the ages as history is brought to life in this newly-transformed museum, with artefacts and exhibitions focusing on key events over 5,000 years, which includes a poignant First World War poppy memorial.

Explore toys that are more than a century old, see Anglo-Saxon jewellery or even try on a medieval gown or Victorian jacket.
