Cumbria Museum Consortium is a group of three organisations working together to run six museums across our beautiful county:

Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery Trust in Carlisle

Lake Land Arts in Kendal and Bowness on Windermere

Wordsworth Grasmere

Our museums are unique in the world for their varied and important collections and for their striking locations across Cumbria.

As a partnership, we’re proud to be part of the Arts Council’s National Portfolio 2018-2022.  That means we receive regular funding to help us care for our collections and buildings, show exhibitions and run all kinds of activities with and for many different people.


Our museums are currently closed due to COVID 19 restrictions. Please keep checking this website for information about when they will re-open.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
