About Kirkleatham Museum
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.
