Ruskin Museum - Collections


Its collections include material on the copper and slate mines of the region, geology, lace making, farming, and writer Arthur Ransome.

A larger collection is devoted to the life and work of John Ruskin.

A specialist collection covers the achievements of Donald Campbell, who died while attempting a new water speed record on Coniston Water. In December 2006, his daughter Gina Campbell donated the salvaged remains of Bluebird K7 to the Ruskin Museum on behalf of the whole Campbell family. The original boat as recovered is now the sole property of the museum, and the boat is being rebuilt for the museum under the control of The Bluebird Project lead by Bill Smith.

Famous quotes containing the word collections:

    Most of those who make collections of verse or epigram are like men eating cherries or oysters: they choose out the best at first, and end by eating all.
    —Sébastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort (1741–1794)
