  • There was an exhibition on re the German Fleet in Scapa flow. Plus the rest of the museum is really interesting  more »
  • Visited the museum because we were diving scapa flow. It gives an excellent insight into the history of the German. It doesn’t stop there as it has a good section on the extensive natural environment....  more »

  • Fascinating and informative displays. Maritime history, through to whaling and John Rae, explorer. Much more besides. Excellent ethnographic exhibition, plus fossils and taxidermy. Well worth a look.
  • Wouldn't allow a well behaved small dog in. As a result they lost £15 as 3 adults would have gone in. I'm afraid much of Scotland is anti dog. Well done the few places that permit them. I appreciate that not all dog owners are responsible owners and they spoil things for the majority. Come to Cumbria and find out what it's like to have your dog welcomed.
