The Laurel & Hardy MuseumThe Laurel & Hardy Museum

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. We're actuallylocated on the stage of the Roxy, so being on stage in a 1930s period cinema feels like a great place to be. The museum is still a work in progress and we hope to be adding new things all the time.

Author's Review

This book has been dedicated to my Aunty Val as she was the one who introduced me to the world of tourist attractions some thirty years ago. I mention this on the review of the Laurel & Hardy Museum, as this was one of the first tourist attractions that I can remember visiting outside of Blackpool. Back then the museum was being run by its founder ‘Bill Cubin' But now , the love and dedication is being channelled through his grandson Mark. The museum has survived for all these years and is testament to the Cubin family. I revisited this attraction in the summer of 2012 and the memories all came flooding back. Although not the biggest museum in history, it is the only one of its kind and I guarantee that if you were not a huge fan of Laurel & Hardy before your visit here, you will be afterwards.
