Whilst you may not be able to visit us at Kirkleatham Museum, we have created a programme of virtual events, craft videos, and activities suitable for all ages inspired by things you would find at the Museum to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. Full details of the programme can be found here.
Kirkleatham Museum is the local heritage museum for the borough of Redcar and Cleveland. It is home to a treasure trove of artefacts and exhibitions; all housed in a magnificent 1709 Queen Anne building that began life as Free School for Boys.
The museum features a wide range of exhibitions and displays covering local industrial, maritime and social history. Kirkleatham Museum also plays host to an annual programme of exciting exhibitions, family events, musical performances and seasonal activities.
Visitors can also enjoy the beautiful grounds found around the museum, with excitement and adventure for children of all ages. Within the museum grounds, a small woodland trail has been created and benefits from hard surfaced pathways, suitable for visitors to enjoy all year round, including those with access difficulties.
Building on the success of the last four years, Kirkleatham will again host the Festival of Thrift and a range of community activities including walks and historical talks.
