Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry, Kendal

4.2
#4 of 6 in Historic Sites in Kendal
The Museum takes you back through time to explore the story of the Lake District and its inhabitants. Isolated before the arrival of the railway and motorcar, this area developed its own unique customs and traditions.

Recreated period rooms and workshops reveal how rural people lived and worked and played and how different life was before the introduction of machinery. Discover a Lake District kitchen, complete with traditional recipes and utensils, a bedroom full of vernacular furniture and furnishings – including a magnificent 17th century four-poster bed, a farmhouse parlour with a working phonograph and rare 18th century oak panelling.

  • Worth a visit when you have an hour or two to spare. Easily worth £5. Some interesting features. Very nice café by the art gallery. Homemade pork pie was a blast from the past. Local parking was a typical rip off, almost as much as the entrance fee. Same all over the lakes and a real off-putting cost.
  • Okay, if you're a history enthusiast it's alright but I wouldn't suggest taking young children to be entertained, you'll spend your time keeping them away from the 'Do Not' signs. I was also expecting a bit more for the £5 entry fee.
