GO Museums in Blackpool

Museums in Blackpool From the Royals to UFOs and lifeboats to Dr Who, there’s a whole world to discover inside Blackpool’s many museums and exhibition centres.

Considered as the resort's most famous museum, Louis Tussauds Waxworks [map] on Central Promenade has five floors packed to bursting with amazing waxwork figures. Along with most of the Royal family, you’ll also find politicians, film stars, pop singers and sporting greats lined up side by side in the Grand Hall. You can also visit the scary Chamber of Horrors and Anatomy Exhibition.

If science is more your idea of fun then maybe the Exhibition of the Universe [map] at the Golden Mile Centre on Central Promenade is worth a look. Formerly known as the Alien & UFO Exhibition, this attraction was built by David Boyle, a researcher in all fields of the unexplained, spirituality and the super-natural.

And if you enjoy that, you may also like to pay a visit to the nearby Dr Who Exhibition and Museum [map], which features the original props and costumes from 40 years of British science fiction TV.

To escape the hustle and bustle of the town centre why not head out to Stanley Park where you’ll find the Blackpool Model Village and Gardens [map]. Set in two-and-a-half acres of beautiful gardens, this attraction has hundreds of models built against a background of waterfalls, lakes and running streams. Highlights include the model windmill and castle.

Finally, for those who are interested in boats the Blackpool Lifeboat Station and Visitor Centre [map] on Central Promenade is a must. Here you’ll find a splendid lifeboat station standing in the shadow of Blackpool Tower complete with an exciting visitor centre with interactive displays, viewing gallery, information on the history of the station, and a souvenir shop.
