Lakeland Motor Museum

Details

Whether you are a petrol-head or not this is the perfect attraction for you and all the family. This brilliant museum houses over 30,000 exhibits tracing more than 100 years of road transport heritage. Recently a new exhibition has been launched which details the history of the Isle of Man TT Races, one of the most famous motorbike events.

You’ll discover numerous fascinating stories rooted in the 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.
