Kirkleatham Museum

Kirkleatham Museum is the local heritage museum for the borough of Redcar and Cleveland. The treasure trove of artefacts are all housed in a magnificent 1709 Queen Anne building that began life as a Free School for Boys.

Kirkleatham Museum features a wide range of exhibitions and displays covering local industrial, maritime and social history. It also plays host to an annual programme of exciting temporary exhibitions, family events – including the Festival of Thrift, musical performances and seasonal activities.

In April 2019 the museum launched its newest exhibtion, the culmination of a 12 month community engagement and research project which showcases stories, artefacts and pictures from real people who worked and lived in the steel industry and community. For more information on the exhibition see Steel Stories.
