  • Small but well done, we went as a group of adults and everyone enjoyed the visit. There is a reconstruction of a period dwelling, an exhibit on hiking and rambling and then an exhibit on local trades and commerce. Seems like strange bedfellows but it works and the reconstructions are very well done.
  • Very informative. Great displays
  • Nice little museum. Various rooms and exhibits showing Lakeland life, plus exhibits of photos and Arthur Ransome bits.
  • Great art gallery
  • This is a well produced and carefully constructed exhibition, offering insight into a variety of aspects of Cumbrian life. It is probably something to save for a rainy day (see the real Cumbria if the sun is shining!) but it is well worth a visit.
