the Blackpool Museum
The Museum is currently run in partnership with Lancashire Museums and Fleetwood Museum Trust; the latter group providing funding for development and local volunteers to ensure the Museum remains open. With so many people from the local community involved, the Museum has a strong community focus, and is open to new ideas to involve more people from the locality.
Volunteers come from varied backgrounds each one passionate about the museum; the heritage; and the need to inspire others. Volunteers with backgrounds from industries displayed within the Museum offer ‘real life’ information to the visitors. Not many Museums can offer this and it proves to be a positive addition to the visitor experience.
