Windermere Jetty Museum of Boats, Steam and Stories is the Lake District’s award-winning museum and visitor destination, a vibrant, family-friendly place dedicated to the boats, people and the rich history of Windermere, England’s largest natural lake. It opened its doors in spring 2019 following a £20m development of the site of the former Windermere Steamboat Museum.

The scheme involved the construction of a new boat museum on the eastern shore of Lake Windermere in the Lake District National Park with associated facilities. The new buildings will provide a main exhibition space, a conservation workshop and gallery, a shop, café, educational learning space and administration space for staff. A wet dock allows a display of boats on the water within the museum.
