The Lakeland Pencil Museum

Pencil Museum

Discover the colourful world that is home to a giant, an escape artist’s pencil, art adventures and the world’s longest colour pencil! Be inspired by professional artists and create your own adventures in art. With workshops in creative crafts from animation, cartoons and illustrations to model making there is something for all the family to create. Discover the secrets behind the fascinating history of the escape artist’s pencil that RAF pilots carried with them during the war to guide them safely home, in the Secret Pencil Exhibition. Let the kids imaginations run free in the Kids Art Studio while the adults relax and have a cuppa and a sticky bun at the riverside location.
