Set over three floors the museum galleries contains a range of permanent and temporary exhibits about the history of the Barrow in Furness area. Items on display include model ships, clothing, household items, historical artefacts, photographs, archaeological finds and Viking artefacts including a sword and some silver coins and jewellery from the Furness Viking Hoard.
