Expert review of Cumberland Pencil Museum
I know what you're thinking. Pencils = boring, right?
Wrong. My five year old loved this quirky little museum. Some of the historcal exhibition passed her by but, overall, it's fun, hands on and surprisingly eductaional - did you know that graphite was first discovered in the nearby Borrowdale Valley in the early 1500s? Me either.
Check out the 25-ft-longest coloured pencil in the world, Keswick's most famous record breaker.
General admission is £3.75; child £2.50.
