Cumberland Pencil MuseumKeswick Category Museums & Galleries, For the Family
The Pencil Museum, situated in Keswick, Cumbria, in the heart of the Lake District, is a great all weather attraction for the whole family with lots of things to see and do.
Be amazed at the worlds longest colour pencil, marvel at the James Bond style World War II pencil, follow the history of pencil making in words, pictures and lovingly restored machinery, find out exactly how we get a lead into a pencil today and there's a funky Kids Art Studio, where we hold art and crafts events throughout the year.
There is an ever changing programme of free demonstrations, tuition workshops and family fun days designed to appeal to everyone whether you are a doodler, a sketcher or an aspiring artist.
If you would like to visit regularly, a Family Membership Pass is available that covers entry to the museum for 12 months, plus a 10 per cent discount in the retail shop.
