  • The Ruskin muesem was disappointing so we went to the cafe and nearly fainted. 2 sausage rolls 2 scones and clotted cream with 4 bottles of diet coke an amazing £27.50 !!!!!!!!!. No justication for a ridiculous cost for a snack . Please look long and hard at your profiteering. If this price is incorrect we were over charged.
  • Amazing museum which requires your time and attention. Excellent place to visit if you want a break from the weather in Coniston and well presented artifacts and of course Ruskins works. Also a slightly overwhelming exhibition about Donald Campbell and the famous and tragic blue bird museum with something for everyone in a compact space.
  • Love this museum you need to put it on your to do list when you visit coniston
  • Great small museum. The Bluebird and climbing exhibits are particularly good.
  • Very interesting especially the Donald Campbell exhibition well worth a visit .
