Ruskin Museum Review

This repository of fascinating and thought-provoking manuscripts, personal items, and watercolors by John Ruskin illuminates his thinking and influence. There is also a focus on speedboat racer Donald Campbell; the tail fin of his Bluebird K7, dragged up from Coniston Water, is here. Good local-interest exhibits include copper mining, geology, lace, and more.
