With plenty of history to keep you and your family entertained, The Dorman Museum offers a great range of permanent display galleries to captivate visitors of all ages.

From space, natural elements of the earth, through to Middlesbrough through time. The museum is host to the largest public collection of Linthorpe Art Pottery, as well as designs by the renowned British designer, Christopher Dresser.

The museum is wheelchair and pram friendly, with an accessible lift that takes you up to the top floor.

The Dorman Museum is open from 10am to 4pm from Tuesday to Sunday, and closed on Mondays.

Located on the town centre entrance of Albert Park, the museum is a perfect educational pitstop after some shopping in Middlesbrough’s Cleveland Centre, and before relaxing in the park with a picnic.

Alternatively, you can enjoy some lunch and a coffee in the Lakeside Cafe, serving reasonably priced meals, including beef burgers which are approximately £4.

Latte’s are priced at £2.30.

Between the months May – September, The Dorman Museum will house a Titanic memorial exhibition that will offer an incredible insight into life aboard the Titanic – the majestic passenger liner which sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 after hitting an iceberg, often regarded as one of the 20th century’s greatest disasters.

It’s the first time the collection will be displayed in the North East and some of the objects on show have never previously been viewed by the public.
