Great place to visit for all the family would recommend for a day out . Indoor picnic area if the weathers bad so all conditions covered.

Popped in while waiting for the Trincomalee tour to start (entrance only by "tour" in February). It is a very interesting small museum setting out the history of Hartlepool from Roman /Medieval remains to the ship building of the industrial revolution and bombardment in ww2. Particular highlights for me being the superb model ships and steam engines (some working) and a collection of mainly 19th C Hindu and Buddhist art donated by the Museums chief benefactor. They only have minimal description , far less than the laughable poster with them apologising because his views (none of which are featured in the display of course) don't conform to 21 C requirements. Hope such ingratitude doesn't put off locals helping out the museum in future.

This is a small free museum attached to the gift shop of the Royal Naval Museum (where you pay) at the historic quay near to Jackson’s landing. It is quite interesting. There are lots of local exhibits and artefacts telling the history of Hartlepool, including shipbuilding and fishing. There is the first gas illuminated light-house, models of ships, a film to watch and interactive displays. There is a children’s area with a fishing coble for the children to climb on and colouring/drawing stations. The Wingfield Castle is currently closed, awaiting restoration.
