Grandsons morning out
sep. 2021 • Familj
My grandson loves History, we've been going for weeks but finally got today. We went to see the Harrington room as my son made something for it. We were shown round by Mr Jones he was brilliant with my grandson. Jacob loves the story of Mary Queen of Scots, we went last time to an exabition. He can't wait to go again. Thanks so much for the tour.

A real 'hidden' gem
mars 2020
Just what a local museum should be, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, voluntary staff. Slightly untidy, but, amazingly comprehensive cover of the history of what I always regarded as a 'depressed' area. Spent almost the whole afternoon and will have to go back to explore the rest.

Amazing treasures and a very knowledgeable man who showed us round!
feb. 2020
What a wonderful find!
The Helena Thompson`museum was gifted to the town by a lady who was ahead of her times. It contains many local treasures and the man who showed us round was interesting, knowledgeable and passionate about Workington. We had previously visited the ruins of Workington Hall, ancestral home of the Curwen family, which is opposite the museum. So we were interested to find a scale model and many information boards about its building and the family's history. The Luck of Workington, a cup given to the family by Mary Queen of Scots, is displayed well. Every facet of Workington's history is displayed...Percy Kelly the artist, The story of the Steel Works and the Bessemer Converter, costumes, furniture, paintings, ship building, local industries...all most interesting!
Our guide brought the house alive and we intend to return in the near future!
There is the opportunity to have a hot drink and the museum has a diary of special events which involve afternoon tea. They also cater for weddings and special birthdays.

What a gem
aug. 2019
Travelling back and forth through Workington we kept seeing the sign for this museum. Never having heard of Helena Thompson, we were intrigued and decided to visit.
It turned out to be one of the highlights of our two week holiday in the Northern Lakes.
This is more than just a local history museum (albeit an excellent example of one) but more a journey through the rise and demise of this once vibrant and important industrial town and region. The surprise of the visit was undoubtedly the history of the Curwen family and Workington Hall (the ruins are just across the road).
The thing that makes a visit so memorable though is without doubt the volunteers who are so knowledgable and so willing to explain and expand on the exhibits.
Couldn't recommend more highly.

A two hour personal tour by Stephen - and every minute was enjoyable!
okt. 2018 • Par
We visited this small museum - full of interesting artefacts and fascinating facts!
It was empty of other visitors and they were preparing for a private party the next day, but "Stephen" took us around every room and held us spellbound with his extensive knowledge and interesting stories.
A Trust specified that no admittance charge could be levied - so we made a donation of £5 each - and it was worth every penny!
Make sure you visit if in Workington - amazing information/items on Mary Queen of Scots and the local industries.
By his own admission Stephen is guide, handyman, DJ (Yes!) and everything else that is needed.
A true professional, an enthusiastic historian, a brilliant raconteur, a very hard working VOLUNTEER.
Give this place a visit and help it to remain in existence - the local council would love it to fail & put it to other uses!
