Łomża Governorate (Russian: Ломжская губерния; Polish: Gubernia łomżyńska) was an administrative unit (guberniya) of Congress Poland with seat in Łomża.


In 1867 territories of the Augustów Governorate and the Płock Governorate were divided into a smaller Płock Governorate, Suwałki Governorate (consisting mostly of the Augustów Governorate territories) and a recreated Łomża Governorate.

In 1893, a small amount of territory was transferred from the Łomża Governorate to the Warsaw Governorate.
