Visit Lancaster City Museum

An interesting museum gathering together a range of bits and pieces telling the story of an interesting city, Lancaster City Museum was founded in 1923 and is situated in the very grand Georgian former town hall in the city's Market Square, where it has been since its foundation.

The museum is notable for a particularly fine collection of Roman artefacts, as well as some art and some decent displays that tell the story of the city well. It also houses the King's Own Royal Regiment Museum, which tells the story of the infantry regiment that was based in Lancaster from 1680 until the 1950s, when it joined with the Royal Border Regiment to become The King's Own Royal Border Regiment.
