About The Laurel & Hardy Museum
The Laurel and Hardy Museum is appropriately sited in the town of Ulverston, Stan Laurel's birthplace. He was born in 1890, the son of a theatrical couple, his father was a successful theatre owner and his mother, an actress. Oliver Hardy was born in Georgia, USA, in 1892. Unlike Stan, he was to grow up without knowing his father, who died when Stan was 11 months old.
Before meeting the pair led decidedly different lives, but both focused on the theatre at quite an early age. They met in around 1917 when they starred together in a movie called The Lucky Dog, and the rest as they say, is history.
Stan and Ollie made us laugh, rattle and roll, for most of their lives. As comedians they were the unique, masters of their art in every respect. They made over one hundred films, in which their comedy enriched millions of lives. Today, through the medium of the small screen many of their old films can be seen on TV, attracting a whole new audience.
The Laurel and Hardy museum celebrates their lives and achievements. It is a treasure trove of memorabilia dedicated to "the boy's" with personal items, letters, photographs, films and furniture. The museum was the life-times work of the late Bill Cubin, who amassed an amazing variety of objects, building up what is the largest museum in the world completely devoted to the famous pair.
The museum offers an enjoyable experience for those old enough to remember the duo, and for the young. There is a great deal to see and much to learn of their working partnership and domestic lives. A small cinema shows films and newsreel footage during opening hours.
