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.

This is a real gem of a museum with a wide range memorabilia associated with the brilliant comedy pair. Laurel and Hardy films are played continuously whilst browsing around and the proprietor is a 'mine of information' and helped to explain certain things we weren't...More

Not expensive at £5 per head and if you are a lover of Laurel&Hardy it is a must see. The museum is only small, but packed with information and bits to see regarding the duo. Main highlight for me was the Cinema style screen with...More

Wouldn't call it a museum as other people have said just some copies of pictures news clippings etc. You could have got this information from a book. A couple of hats and costumes as well. There was an old bed that may or may not...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit with our 8 year old granddaughter. Well worth a visit and £10- for 2 adults and a child was a cheap day out.
