Visited this museum as the weather was not predicted to be good. There are two main exhibition areas on the entrance level as well as a shop, plus a further space at the lower level and a cafe.
The main reason for e visit was to see the exhibition on Blencathra. This was excellent with artefacts, history boards and a couple of video screens depicting local life and events in the area over time
Following an excellent coffee and cake in the cafe, we looked at the permanent exhibition which had a variety of exhibits, including local flora and fauna, geology, characters and mountaineering.
We were there for a couple of hours and the reasonably priced admission allows re-entry for the next 12 months.
This is well worth a visit.
