Due to the retirement of board members and insufficient volunteers to staff the front desk, we urgently need people of all ages, experience and background to come forward.  All you need is an interest in Maryport and its heritage and a few hours a week to spare.  We also need people with Accounts, admin and IT skills.

We can promise you the satisfaction of learning more about our town, meeting visitors from all over the world and helping Maryport people and businesses to benefit from this popular tourist attraction.

 If you would like to join us, please contact us call in any Friday, Saturday or Sunday, 11am-3pm


Our fully-refurbished pop up museum is now open so why not come and take a look? 

The Maritime Museum is situated on the the corner of Curzon Street and Senhouse Street in the historic town of Maryport, in a building ideally situated close to the town's main shops.

The museum collection consists of objects, photographs and paintings relating to the maritime, industrial and social history of Maryport.


Please call 01900 813738 for further information.
