Ruskin Museum Museums
The Institute, Yewdale Rd
There has been a Ruskin Museum in Coniston since 1901, when W. G. Collingwood, a local artist and antiquarian who had been Ruskin's secretary, set it up both as a memorial to Ruskin and a celebration of the area's heritage. Therefore, although the museum has a Ruskin collection, there are also exhibits relating to the coppermines, slate, geology, lace, farming and Donald Campbell.
Inspiring as well as educational, the museum has additional folders of information to complement the collection. THERE REALLY IS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE !!
We also do our own guided walks on a wide variety of themes from the Coniston Coppermines to Donald Campbell. These are either on preset dates or can be booked by groups/organizations on a date that suits you. Please click the MUSEUM GUIDED WALKS link for detailed information. .
