Expert review of Kendal Museum
This sprawling collection of local hsitory, fossils, minerals and antiques dates from 1796.
It may appear a bit musty and dusty but it's a little piece of Lakeland histor preserved for posterity.
After World War One the museum was run by a series of honorary curators on behalf of the Town Council. One of these curators was a ceratin Alfred Wainwright, who went to write the best-selling pictorial guides.
Look out for a regular programme of events, talks and classes.
Free entry extended throughout 2011.
