Expert review of Lakeland Motor Museum
The newly expanded Lakeland Motor Museum relocated from the grounds of stately Holker Hall and Gardens in May 2010.
The new museum, located near Lakeside at Backbarrow, expands the original collection, bringing some 10,000 items of memorabilia out of storage and into the public domain for the first time. The exhibits trace a narrative, telling the story of transport from highway robbery to electric hybrid cars.
Highlights include a 1936 Flying Flea airplane and an original hot air balloon, both suspended from the roof of the main hall.
General admission is £7.50; children aged 5-15 £5; under fives free.
