Windermere Jetty Museum of Boats, Steam and Stories

Windermere Jetty Museum of Boats, Steam and Stories is to be a fabulous destination on the lake where boating heritage comes to life. Steam launches, sailing yachts, motor boats and record-breaking speed boats will be exhibited in the Boathouse, on the water, and in the large exhibition space. Every day the conservation team will be in action in the Workshop.

We will give visitors a ‘behind the scenes’ look at objects awaiting conservation. Visitors will hear tales of the boat-builders and owners, their lives and adventures while learning about the fascinating developments in design and technology. Windermere Jetty will have exciting learning and community programmes for children and adults and provide a wide variety of training opportunities.

The museum is currently closed whilst we build these new, world-class buildings and conserve the collection of historic boats.

In the meantime there is lots to explore on the website. Find out more about the boats that will be on display at Windermere Jetty, check up on progress with the building and find out what job opportunities we have available.
