Collecting Fleetwood

‘Collecting Fleetwood’ showcases some of the amazing material that has been donated to Fleetwood Museum in 2018-19.

From stunning ship models to artworks by Keith Sutton and JW Green, fascinating objects covering many aspects of Fleetwood history, and amazing colour footage of Fleetwood from the 1950s, this exhibition will offer you an insight into Fleetwood’s rich history.  

You can also let us know on gallery what you think we should be collecting, and also what you collect yourself!
