The Beacon traces the rich history of this fascinating corner of the Western Lake District through excellent interactive displays.

The Harbour Gallery has a full programme of exhibitions all year, ranging from local community exhibitions to national exhibitions such as Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Visitors can enjoy panoramic views of the Georgian town and harbour from the fourth floor Viewing Gallery. New for 2016 is a fourth floor extension with extra gallery space and a bespoke science and events building for national touring exhibitions.
