Museums and Galleries in Cumbria

Museum of Lakeland Life - Kendal

Museum of Lakeland Life, Kendal

Below is our first listing of museums and galleries in the Lake District and also in the wider county of Cumbria. Some are owned and operated by public bodies; others are private. Some are commercial; some are not. Some focus on fine art; others address the region’s history, including community and industrial history. We trust that this mix of indoor options for your time in this beautiful part of the country will complement the beauty of the outdoor natural surroundings. We’ll add others from time to time as we come across (or realise that we’ve accidentally missed) them.

Lake District on our blog

Our Lake District Directory contains mostly (but not exclusively) indoor locations as these are less easily seen on a Lake District map than are mountains, rivers and lakes.

No-one has paid to have an attraction listed here. Items are included only because we consider them worth bringing to your attention, although of course we can’t guarantee that everything will interest everyone.
