Walked past a few times but never been in before today. Decided to take our little girl, who loves Peter Rabbit, in to look around. Fun, informative and great for children of all ages! Well worth a visit - under 3s go free.

Lovely little museum, ideal for little children as my teenagers were too old really. Lovely way to spend an hour when in the Lake District.
