The museum details Wordsworth life & work in the Lake District. It also covers his close relationship with his sister Dorothy & poet ST Coleridge. You get to see his original poems, what he wore & use daily which is a reflection of his period...More

Called in here on our break in Grasmere, fantastic to see the mans life all here before you. Some great handwritten features, well worth a visit.
The Wordsworth Museum is full of everything you may want to know about Wordsworth and his close family. Well presented and with more interactive opportunities than I expected. Thought-provoking too.
Great museum all about the life, times, works of William Wordsworth and his closest friends and their poetry. See original handwritten poems, clothing and furniture of the period and get a great insight into the times in which Wordsworth lived and created his famous works....More
Enjoyed the journey through Wordsworth's life! The life-size figures at the beginning of the self-guided tour do not continue as you progress through the museum (thankfully!). Enjoyed trying to write with a quill pen!
The visit to Wordsworth cottage was very interesting and appears to be very much untouched from the time he and his family occupied the place. The volunteers know their subject giving an excellent insight into the history fo the family and the building.

Lovely museum with plenty of info about the man and his work, some beautiful paintings to admire, had a pleasant few hours here, ticket is valid for 12 months so keep your receipt if you want to go back.
A great little experience even if not a fan of the poet, the guided tour of Dove cottage of real interest and fun. A must if in the area and worth a detour if not.
