Lancaster museum ready to welcome visitors again after winter clean

Lancaster’s Judges’ Lodgings is ready to welcome visitors for the 2024 season. 

The museum has completed its winter clean, ensuring the historic interiors are looking great for their opening.

The teams have also been busy preparing a new public programme with a range of events and exhibitions on offer, with something for everyone. 

In addition, admission charges have been simplified and revised, with free entry for kids being extended to anyone under the age of 18 from Monday, 1 April. 

Visitors can also buy an Xplorer Pass for £25 which gives 12-months unlimited entry for the pass holder and up to three adults to Judges’ Lodgings, Gawthorpe Hall, Padiham, Helmshore Mills Textile Museum, and Queen Street Mill Textile Museum, Burnley.

The pass also includes entry to Clitheroe Castle Museum, which Lancashire County Council operates on behalf of Ribble Valley Borough Council.

Emma Heslewood, senior museum manager at Lancashire County Council, said: “The mills and houses that we manage are really special and enable visitors to explore Lancashire’s heritage. 

“We are very excited to be able to welcome people back to our museums, where our excellent volunteers and staff are on hand to help people reconnect with their local history.”

In 2024, there is a chance to see the new Gillows of Lancaster – A Global Story exhibition, exploring the story of Lancaster's famous furniture maker.

Visitors can also see the Facing the Past: Black Lancastrians exhibition featuring work by artist Lela Harris and Lancaster schoolchildren, which was recently shortlisted for a Museums Change Lives award.
