Lakeland Motor Museum
Over 30,000 exhibits tracing more than 100 years of road transport heritage, including a new exhibition which details the history of the Isle of Man TT Races. Numerous fascinating stories rooted in our local area: a typical 1930's Westmorland garage re-creation, the Campbell Bluebird Exhibition and the Leven Valley Heritage Centre which depicts how life used to be in the Backbarrow Blue Mill, the iron works, gunpowder factories and woodland industries.
A thought provoking and thoroughly enjoyable visitor experience which entertains all ages, whatever the weather.
