Museum of Lancashire Gets Thumbs Up!

16 June 2014

THE Museum of Lancashire (MoL) has received a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor after consistently receiving positive reviews on the travel rating website.

Comments on TripAdvisor from recent visitors to the county council-run museum include: “Best small museum I have been to”, “Fantastic museum!” and "Great family day out".

County Councillor Marcus Johnstone, cabinet member for environment, planning and cultural services, said: "Congratulations to the staff at MoL for receiving a certificate of excellence from TripAdvisor. It's a superb attraction and it comes as no surprise to me that 93% of visitors have rated the museum as very good or excellent.

"There are a number of very interesting events coming up at the museum in the next couple of months which I have every confidence will attract more positive reviews.

"In particular, I'd be keen to see the two World War One exhibitions, Somewhere in France and Outbreak 1914 – and let's not forget the Silverdale Hoard which is on display for the rest of the year."

Housed in the former Quarter Sessions House, the Museum of Lancashire is a gateway to more than 2,000 years of Lancashire's history.

It has a range of family-friendly displays and activities where visitors can uncover fabulous stories and the hidden histories of local Lancashire folk past and present.

The museum was reopened in November 2011 after a £1.7m refurbishment project.
