Welcome Aboard: Boating on Windermere
Display: 8 February - 7 July 2013
The easily overlooked treasures of museum collections often paint the most vivid pictures. In this display we are bringing boating on Windermere to life, through beautiful dinner services used for fine dining on board, to oil cans used to keep elegant steam launches whisper-quiet. Together with historical photographs and costume we are giving you a glimpse of the stories that will be told in the new Windermere Steamboat Museum.
