Overview

Now open in our new location. We have a vastly improved exhibition area for you to learn about the life and work of Stan Laurel, with many information boards, personal items and pictures to see. Our cinema area can accommodate around 30 people, showing films and documentaries all day. This is the first phase of our expansion plans with new things being added all the time. The Laurel and Hardy Museum in Ulverston began as the private collection of Bill Cubin, a lifelong fan. Now being run by his grandson, we hope to entertain and inform you about the worlds' best loved double act. New display recently opened. The museum began life as private collection, a wonderful jumble of memorabilia. Our new display attempts to recreate that feeling. A small room packed to the gills with pictures, statues, mugs, records, anything and everything to do with The Boys.

A good wee place to visit, obviously a homage to the fun pair. You forget just how much they did. Films bring it all back

The museum is friendly and quirky, especially for L&H fans, showing continuous films. The exhibits otherwise are mainly photographic, but there is a very good timeline of Stan and Babe's history from cradle to grave. Well worth a visit especially for 5 - 12 year...More
