New Museum opening at Windermere Jetty Museum of Boats, Steam and Stories

23rd March 2019


The new museum tells the story of 200-years of boats, boating and boat building in the Lake District through its internationally significant collection. Owned by Lakeland Arts, the collection of over 40 vessels is the only one of its kind in the world. For the first time over half of the collection, which ranges from Victorian steam launches to record-breaking speedboats from the 1980s, will be on display.

A series of new jetties on the lake allow visitors to sail on Osprey (1902), one of the museums fully-restored Edwardian steam launches and enables the regular lake cruise boats to dock and bring visitors to the museum.
