The Ruskin Museum

The Ruskin Museum


The Ruskin Museum tells the story of Coniston through its many heroes. Be amazed by the sheer courage of Donald Campbell and the story of Bluebird; the inspiration of John Ruskin, his influence on our lives today and the beauty of his drawings; the perseverance of the early copperminers and quarrymen; the imagination of Arthur Ransome and Swallows and Amazons; the bravery of the first rock climbers, founders of the Mountain Rescue; the creativity and dedication of the Langdale Linen and Ruskin Lace makers.

Find us in the heart of Coniston.
