  • Exhibits were dark and dingy, cluttered and no flow at all to the museum. It is in a time warp where museums were 30 plus years ago. I have scored it poor and not terrible because of the friendly memb...  more »

  • Been here a few times and think it's brilliant, it not only facinating for the items it holds but also shows how people through time with it's it's unbelievable collections spent their hobby time. If you look around closely at the interior of the building and beyond the displays in the closed off areas,(in the main upstairs look up at the ceiling and over the displays) you'll notice more original amazing stuff. There is a black and white photograph of how the museum use to display items with glass cases in rows, look at the ceiling in it and you'll see it hasn't changed.
  • This is an interesting if somewhat idiosyncratic museum, with different collections that have been given or added over the years. There is not much coherence to the place, but that adds to its 'charm'. There is a good attempt to make sense of it all but it probably needs £1/2 million to make it really work.
  • Wonderful museum, which is packed full with history. Would recommend to anybody into history.
  • Having lived in Kendal all my life I had never visited the museum until recently and I was pleasantly surprised. Definitely worth a visit for all.
  • We visited the museum as a Scout Group whilst staying in area. Margaret was extremely accommodating for young people and took time to introduce and provide a trail around the exhibits. We will be using the experience towards badge work. I would recommend a visit.
