Coniston's museum explores the village's history, touching on copper mining, Arthur Ransome and the Campbell story. There's also an extensive section on John Ruskin, with displays of his writings, watercolours and sketchbooks.

The new Bluebird Wing currently houses the recovered engine from Donald Campbell's Bluebird K7 boat, but it's eventually hoped that the whole boat will be displayed here when (and if) it's finally restored.
