The Helena Thompson Museum
Free to all
indicates offers with National Art Pass
Local benefactor Helena Thompson lived in this elegant Georgian house which now displays exhibits relating to the culture, history and social life of West Cumbria.
Many of Helena's personal items, including costume, are also on display.
Look out for The Wild Escape at museums and galleries in the next few months. Many have special events, or you can use our audio introduction to help children get involved at any cultural venue.
Visiting with children?
Use our audio introduction to inspire a visit to any museum, gallery or historic house local to you. Then, just send us your child’s animal artwork when it's finished and we'll add it to the epic collective artwork that launches on Earth Day 2023.
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
