Coniston is a prime example of a place where nature and history, environment and man meet in a topographical dimension and together generate culture.

The Ruskin Museum exists to enable you to explore and experience at first hand its literary and cultural heritage collections of national importance and international significance, for inspiration, learning, enjoyment and delight.
