The Ruskin Museum in Coniston, Cumbria, United Kingdom | Museum

Welcome to The Ruskin Museum, Coniston, United Kingdom where it has been since 1901. W.G. Collingwood, a local artist and antiquarian who had been Ruskin's secretary, set it up both as a memorial to Ruskin and a celebration of the area's heritage. Therefore, although The Ruskin Museum has a Ruskin collection, there are also exhibits relating to the coppermines, slate, geology, lace, farming and Donald Campbell.  The Ruskin Museum, Coniston, was extended in 1999 with the help of a Heritage Lottery grant; additional building with modern design-work, computer displays, and hands-on exhibits have transformed the look of the two galleries.
