The legend of Stan and Ollie lives on.

Bill Cubin, a former mayor of Ulverston, founded the original museum to recognise the comic talent of Stan Laurel, who was born in the town on June 16, 1890.

The museum moved to our smart, new premises in the Roxy Cinema in April 2009. Today, it hosts a compelling collection of memorabilia for die-hard fans and new converts alike.

Britain’s first bronze statue to Laurel and Hardy was also unveiled in 2009 by the comedian Ken Dodd. It stands outside Ulverston's tourist information centre.

Expert tips
