The Dock Museum, Barrow-in-Furness

The Dock Museum is located in Barrow-in-Furness alongside the Walney Channel. The largest part of the museum has been constructed within a former dry dock whose original walls can still be seen from inside the museum. Most of its exhibits concern the history of the town, mainly focusing on the shipbuilding industry at Vickers Shipbuilding and Engineering, Ltd (VSEL) which is now BAE Systems, the steelworks industry (of which Barrow once had the world's largest), the Furness Railway and the effects of the World War II bombings of the town.
The museum, which has been in its current location since 1994, has free entry and remains under public ownership.
