Grace Darling Museum

  • Description

    "The RNLI Grace Darling Museum illustrates Grace’s upbringing and life on the lighthouse, the events of the rescue that propelled her into the limelight and the nature of that subsequent fame. Her story is told through personal items, including letters, family portraits and the famous coble. Atmospheric audio-visual interpretation and a stunning model of the Longstone lighthouse are also on offer. Originally opened on this site in 1938, today’s museum is in a stylish and environmentally friendly building that does justice to the displays, events and research that takes place here....."
