Museum of Lakeland Life

The Museum of Lakeland Life tells the story of how people have lived and worked in the Lake District, from the late eighteenth century until more recent years. It is housed in the stable block of the Georgian Abbot Hall Art Gallery, and is managed by the Lakeland Arts Trust. The Museum was opened in 1971 by Princess Alexandra, and is now the registered office of the Arthur Ransome Society.
