Keswick Museum and Art GalleryKeswick Museum

The collection at Keswick Museum was founded by the local Literary and Scientific Society in 1873, with a particular focus on Natural Sciences.

The museum is open daily all year from 10am to 4pm (closed on 24, 25, 26 Dec and 1, 2 Jan.) Almost £2m has been spent on stunning architectural improvements to the building providing new visitor facilities, permanent and changing displays and a learning centre with a beautiful large room to hire.
