The Lake District Sights

Ruskin Museum

Updated 05/30/2014

Fodor's 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; his Bluebird K7, dragged up from Coniston Water, will eventually rest here once it's been painstakingly put back together. Good local-interest exhibits include copper mining, geology, lace, and more. Upstairs, the Dawson Gallery occasionally hosts high-profile

artists.
