How to find us


Thank you for your patience and continued support - the school holidays are here and we know we have a lot of very disappointed visitors who were hoping to be able to visit the museum over the next six weeks. 
Unfortunately our re-opening due to unforeseen renovation problems will now be scheduled for later in the year.
We will continue to update you on our progress and we look forward to welcoming you back to the museum in the future.

Derwent fine art products are available to buy at The Pencil Museum Shop - Station Street Keswick - 017687 73626.
