Welcome to Showtown!

Roll up, Roll up for the greatest show town on earth!

If you’re looking for something marvellously magic, fabulously fun or just fancy a fun filled day out Showtown is the place for you!

Inside you’ll find six galleries on seaside holidays, magic, circus, shows, dance and the illuminations. Take a look behind the scenes and celebrate the singers, the dancers, the magicians and musicians, the clowns, the comedians, the entertainers, and acrobats who all helped to turn Blackpool into the home of show business.

Featuring hundreds of exhibits and fun activities, this new immersive experience will provide hours of entertainment.  Changing exhibitions will keep you coming back, time and time again. We’ll have a learning space for group sessions and events. We’ll also have a museum shop - packed full of fun gifts and goodies.
Whether you’re a fun-seeker or future star performer, we want you to get involved and have fun!  Get on the dance floor, learn to juggle, perform your own Punch and Judy show or design your own Illumination.  There’ll be something for everyone at Showtown.
