We’re a unique and world-class museum in a famously beautiful location. A working destination, committed to conserving, saving and sharing the internationally important Windermere boat collection. Here we tell the stories behind these boats and actively involve you in the crafts and tradition that built them. Every visit gives you an invaluable insight into a vital part of our national and local history while making you part of life on the lake.

Windermere Jetty, designed by Carmody Groarke architects, is due to re-open in 2017.

We have moved a step closer to opening with the appointment of our main contractor, Thomas Armstrong (Construction) Limited, who will start work on the museum site this month. View the full press release.
