Clitheroe Castle Museum

Clitheroe Castle is a ruined early medieval castle in Clitheroe in Lancashire.

Today the buildings on the site are the home of Clitheroe Castle Museum. The main museum area is in the former Steward’s House, a Grade II listed building, originally built in the 18th century whilst the former courthouse houses a temporary exhibition space.

Its main collections are around social history and geology but it also has smaller collections of natural history, local art and period costume, and the archaeology collection includes items recovered from excavations on the site.

The 6.4-hectare (16-acre) castle grounds site was established as a public park after the castle site was acquired by the council.
