Esperance Project - Science in Motion

The Esperance Project is a collection of fun and inspiring projects for schools which is being run by our team, in collaboration with creative partners and local businesses. We are working with six Cumbrian primary and secondary schools each participating in a unique project rooted in the collection of historic boats and Windermere Jetty museum. The projects are being delivering throughout 2016.

Site Progress - August

With the café and boathouse structures completed towards the end of last month the main exhibition building is now following suit. The largest building will house the main displays telling stories about the boats and the fascinating people that designed, built and used them on the lake. Once the steel frame has been completed, work will start to form the dry dock in the centre of the space where Branksome will be displayed when the new museum opens. A temporary exhibition gallery overlooking the lake will also enable changing exhibitions and displays
