The world’s only museum devoted to Laurel and Hardy is in Ulverston, the town where Stan Laurel was born on 16th June 1890.
Everything you want to know about them is in the museum. The late Bill Cubin, the founder of the museum, devoted his life to these famous comedians and collected an amazing variety of memorabilia, believed to be the largest in the world, including letters, photographs, personal items and furniture.
Bill died in 1997 but his legacy lives on and the Museum is still in the family, run by his daughter and grandsons.
A large extension opened in 1992 gives ample room to browse. There is a small cinema showing free films and documentaries all day.
